Two More Bite the Dust

Two more senior al Qaeda leaders have been killed in Iraq. Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, the head of the so-called Islamic State in Iraq, was killed in an engagement with American and Iraqi troops, according to Iraq’s deputy interior minister.
Meanwhile, DNA tests apparently have confirmed the death of Muharib Abdul Latif al-Jubouri, the “senior minister of information” for al Qaeda in Iraq. Al-Jabouri has reportedly been responsible for a number of kidnappings and murders. It was not clear whether these two men were killed in the same engagement, or on different occasions, but both were reported to have been killed north of Baghdad.
