US denies reports on Al-Zarqawi capture
The US military denied reports that occupation forces had captured Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi. "It's not true," said Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt, the occupation's deputy director for military operations.
US ambassador Richard Jones also said Monday that he doubted these reports.
Earlier it was reported that al-Zarqawi, the man believed to be leading the resistance in Iraq, has been captured. Al Zarqawi is America's most wanted man in Iraq. The reports said he had been captured in the town of Hilla, south of Baghdad. The area is under the responsibility of Polish forces.
Al Zarqawi is believed to have been behind a number of kidnappings and beheadings.
