Good news.
Iraqi security forces set up an ambush a couple of days ago that killed an important member of the group Al-Qaeda in Iraq, formerly known as al-Tawhid wal Jihad.
This group has been responsible for many attacks, including an attack on an Iraqi police station in Mosul last month.

BAGHDAD , Iraq – Terrorist Abu Zubair, also known as Mohammed Salah Sultan, was killed August 12 by Iraqi Security Forces in an ambush in the northern city of Mosul .

Zubair was a known member of Al Qaeda in Iraq and a lieutenant in Abu Musab Zarqawi's terrorist operations in Mosul who was being sought by Coalition and Iraqi Security Forces for his involvement in a July suicide bombing attack of a police station in Mosul resulting in the death of five Iraqi police officers. He was also suspected of resourcing and facilitating suicide bomber attacks against Coalition, Iraqi Security Forces and Iraqi citizens throughout the country.

When Zubair was killed he was wearing a suicide device consisting of an explosive pack across his stomach armed with pellets.
