"The strike by our brothers in Guantanamo reveals the real odious and ugly face of America. We pledge God that we will spare no efforts to set them free," he said

Some of the 166 prisoners at Guantanamo began a hunger strike earlier this year to protest conditions and their indefinite confinement.

The message's authenticity could not be independently confirmed but the message was posted on a militant website commonly used by al-Qaida.
