font size    

Iraqi security forces captured the leader of the al-Qaida organization in Salahudin province in northern Iraq on Thursday, a local security source told Xinhua on Friday.

"An Iraqi security force stormed a village in Dujla area, some 150 km north of Baghdad, and captured Abdul Qadir Makhol, a leaderof al-Qaida terrorist organization in the province," the source said on condition of anonymity.

Iraqi forces launched the attack at 6:00 p.m. (1400 GMT) and were acting according to intelligence received from local residents, the source said.

Makhol's capture came after Iraqi security forces killed two al-Qaida leaders in the province, including the leader (Ameer) of theJazeera area and his assistant, three days ago.

On April 25, the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, made an unprecedented appearance in a video, criticizing the new Iraqi government. He also warned U.S. President George W. Bush of more attacks to come.
