Iraqi army kills Al-Qaeda leader in Baghdad

BAGHDAD (Thomson Financial) – Iraqi Army soldiers shot dead an Al-Qaeda cell leader today in a clash inside one of Baghdad’s historic Sunni quarters, military spokesman Brigadier General Qassim Atta said. 

‘He was from Al-Qaeda, they called him the ‘Governor of Adhamiyah’,’ Atta told Agence France-Presse. ‘He was killed during clashes with the 11th Division’s first brigade this morning, and 11 of his aides were arrested.’ 

Adhamiyah is a Sunni enclave in north Baghdad, a cluster of streets around a historic mosque surrounded by US-built concrete security barriers and hostile Shiite districts roamed by militia fighters. 

Atta said the alleged Al-Qaeda chieftain was an Iraqi citizen known as Abu Abdullah al-Adhab — ‘Abu Abdullah with the crippled arm.’ 

Abdullah’s death is the second reported killing of an Al-Qaeda street captain since last week, when nationalist insurgents in the Sunni suburb of Amiriyah violently turned against Al-Qaeda’s Islamists.
