US and Iraqi forces believe they have found a building in Fallujah used by Zarqawi's "Al Qaida in Iraq" group. Within the building they found
documents and computers, that hopefully will contain valuable intelligence for tracking the group. There was no mention as to wether or not clues to
Zarqawi's location can be obtained from the documents found.
As for the supposed Zarqawi headquarters, soldiers walked through an imposing building with concrete columns and with a large sign in Arabic on the
wall reading "Al Qaida Organization" and "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger." The video footage was shot by an embedded CNN
Inside the building, U.S. soldiers found documents, old computers, notebooks, photographs and copies of the Quran.
Al-Zarqawi last month renamed his group Al Qaeda in Iraq, and his followers have been blamed for a number of deadly bombings and beheadings of foreign
hostages, including three Americans and a Briton. The United States has offered a $25 million reward for his capture or killing - the same amount as
for Usama bin Laden.

Finding this building takes away one of "Al Qaida in Iraq"'s safe houses, and makes operating that much more difficult for the group. While they
will not say that operations in Fallujah are complete, they certainly are winding down.
