Hassan Ibrahim Farhan Zaydi, a senior aide to the terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, was killed and two of his aides captured. Details on where and how are sketchy as they don't want to release the information -- possibly because they feel they are close to Zarqawi himself.
A senior aide to Jordanian al Qaeda ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been killed by Iraqi security forces, interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said on Tuesday.
Allawi, in a televised address to Iraq's National Council, said police had killed Hassan Ibrahim Farhan and seized two of his aides, but did not say when or where.
Allawi said those captured were responsible for carrying out the beheadings of several hostages in Iraq. Zarqawi has claimed responsibility for many of the worst attacks to take place in Iraq over the past year, including beheadings of foreigners.
Surely being a Zarqawi aide is right up there with Alaska King Crab Fisherman and Aircraft Carrier Deck Worker in terms of most dangerous jobs in the world as can be seen by the links below.
