Allawi survives attempt
Another Islamic group, this one linked to the most wanted man in Iraq, claimed responsibility Thursday for an assassination attempt against interim Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi.
Allawi was not injured in the assassination attempt Wednesday night, but several guards and police officers were killed when a car bomb exploded at a checkpoint, said Thair al-Naqib, a spokesman for the interim prime minister.
The U.S. military said it had conducted several raids Sunday in and around Baghdad, detaining 13 suspected insurgents, some armed with rocket-propelled grenades.
Two of the suspects were captured in a raid aimed at the leader of a terror cell believed to have plotted an April 20 assassination attempt against former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, the military said. Allawi was unhurt, but at least one policeman was killed and two wounded by a suicide car bomb.
