Al-Qaida in Iraq declares all-out war
At least 10 policemen and five civilians were killed Thursday when a suicide bomber drove his car into a convoy of police vehicles in Baghdad’s
southern Dora district, police said. Ten others were wounded in the 8 a.m. attack, said Lt. Thair Mahmoud. Three police vehicles were destroyed.
al-Qaida's leader in Iraq purportedly declared all out war on Shiite Muslims, Iraqi troops and the country's government in an audio tape released on
Internet. Al-Qaida claimed responsibility for Wednesday's attacks.
The speaker on the released audio tape, introduced as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, also said his militant forces would attack any Iraqi it believes has
cooperated with an ongoing U.S.-led offensive in the northern Iraqi city of Tal Afar. "If proven that any of (Iraq's) national guards, police or
army are agents of the Crusaders, they will be killed and his house will demolished or burnt — after evacuating all women and children — as a
punishment," the voice said in the new tape, which surfaced on an Internet site known for carrying extremist Islamist content.
The speaker announced "all-out war against Shiites everywhere. Beware, there will be no mercy." Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
