The Muhammad bin Nayif Tape

Unfortunately, I don’t have time to blog about this, because I would really like to. Instead, it will have to be a link dump. First there is the audio tape (or at least selections from the phone conversation between Muhammad bin Nayif and Abdullah ‘Asiri.)

Al-Sharq al-Awsat publishes the transcript of the tape along with a fascinating article, I was particularly intrigued by the news of al-Shihri’s wife.

Finally, Asiri’s father who still has another son on the run in Yemen condemns the attack.
