Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has told rival jihadists in Syria to accept independent Islamic arbitration to end three months of infighting, saying in an audio message Friday the violence is "sedition".Abu Khaled was appointed last year as Zawahiri's representative in Syria and was once close to now slain Al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden.Al-Nusra Front chief Abu Mohammed al-Jolani has accused ISIL of murdering Abu Khaled and warned the group he would fight it inside Syria and Iraq, where ISIL has its base, unless it accepts Islamic arbitration.Zawahiri called on the jihadists to stop the infighting when clashes first erupted in January.
