BREAKING: Many of the gunmen wore yellow headbands bearing the name of a Muslim militant group called "Saraya al-Tawhid and Jihad" (Battalions of
Unification and Holy War).
The name is close to that of the Jama'at al-Tawhid and Jihad group led by Jordanian-born militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, which has claimed
responsibility for many attacks in Iraq, including this week's beheading of a South Korean hostage.
