"Our heroes have woven their grave-clothes with your blood," Wuhayshi added.

Deputy Interior Minister Mohammed bin Nayef had a miraculous escape in the August 27 terror attack in Jeddah.

The video also contained the a telephonic conversation between the bomber and bin Nayef in which the bomber named Abdullah bin Hassan bin Taleh Assiri has expressed his desire to return to Saudi Arabia from Yemen, The News reports.

"I would like to meet you to discuss the whole matter with you," Assiri told bin Nayef in the conversation which was broadcast by Al-Arabiya television channel.
