We Got Another Zarqawi Aide, Syria Implicated


Iraqi security forces arrested a leader of one of Musaab Al-Zarqawi's terrorist cells in Baquba, northeast of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad on Wednesday.

An Iraqi police source told reporters that soldiers of the Iraqi Army captured Taifor Abdulsattar Malallah one of the "princes" of Musaeb Al-Zaraqi's terrorist group in Baquba.

The source who preferred anonymity said the army raid resulted in the capture of Bakir Al-Hiraibi, one of Malallah's close aides, and five others of his cell members wanted by the Iraqi government. The captured have "confessed to executing many criminal attacks against Iraqi police and National Guard in addition to planting explosive devices," he said.

Interrogations have revealed that all those arrested have relations with a country neighboring Iraq, he said.

Hmmm, I wonder which country that could possibly be????? Thanks to Reliapundit for e-mailing this to me.
