Zarqawi update

Well nothing new on the thread that the original post about Zarqawi being surrounded came from, but I did find out 2 news outlets that hinted towards the same possiblity.



The first is www.debka.com
The second is a story on www.washingtonpost.com

"...A U.S. and Iraqi raid on a suspected al Qaeda in Iraq safe house in Mosul sparked a three-hour firefight in which four insurgents and four policemen were killed and three guerrillas blew themselves up, said Gov. Duraid Kashmoulaof Nineveh province.

Iraqi and U.S. forces had suspected Abu Musab Zarqawi, leader of Iraq's most feared insurgent group, might be at the house, Kashmoula said. Zarqawi's whereabouts have been the topic of a stream of murky reports; U.S. military officials have said they believe Zarqawi has vowed not to be taken alive.
