BAGHDAD (AP) — The leader of the extremist group that has swept over much of northern Syria and Iraq has called on Muslims to come to the territory his group has seized to help build an Islamic state.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, head of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, says in a 19-minute audiotape released on line Tuesday: "Muslims, rush to your state. Yes, it is your state."

He makes a special call to scholars, judges, doctors, engineers and people with military and administrative expertise to come "answer the dire need of the Muslims for them."
