October 4, 2008
U.S. forces in Iraq killed Abu Rami, an al Qaeda leader believed to have masterminded a wave of recent bombings in Baghdad, Monsters and Critics reported Oct. 4, citing a statement from the U.S. Army. Rami was killed in Adkhamiyah, a Sunni district in Baghdad, on Oct. 3 after intelligence reports led U.S. soldiers to the building where he was hiding. The soldiers came under fire from inside the building and returned fire, killing Rami and an unnamed woman. Rami, also known as Abu Assad and Mahir Ahmad Mahmud Judu al-Zubaydi, is believed to have exercised a great amount of control over terrorist operations in Baghdad’s Rusafa neighborhood and other areas in the city.
