Iraqi soldiers killed on Saturday a local al-Qaida leader in an ambush in Salahudin province north of Baghdad, a local police source said.

Based on intelligence reports taken from local citizens, the troops early in the morning ambushed and killed Salih Jad Allah al-Ajeeli on the main road between the provincial city of Tikrit and the town of Tuz-Khurmato to the east, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Ajeeli is accused of killing dozens of Iraqi security members in the province, including the police chief of the Albu-Ajil area, just east of Tikrit, some 170 km north of Baghdad, the source said.

U.S. troops and Iraqi security forces frequently kill or capture al-Qaida militants in Iraq.
