Osama bin Laden threatens to kill captured Americans

CAIRO (WKOW) -- Osama bin Laden is threatening to kill any captured Americans if the alleged mastermind of September 11 is executed.

The audio message from the Al Qaida leader aired on Al Jazeera TV Thursday.

Bin Laden stated that if the U.S. executed Khalid Sheik Mohammed that would mean a "death sentence" for all Americans captured.

The Obama administration is still debating on a place to hold Mohammed's trial.  He is currently in U.S. custody.
