Taifor Abdulsattar Malallah, a leader of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's al-Qaeda in Iraq
terrorist group in Baquba, northeast of Baghdad, has been arrested by Iraqi security forces. One more notch in the bedpost for the Iraqi's.
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.
Rusty at The Jawa Report figures the "neighboring country" is Syria. Why couldn't it be Iran?
