Update: Al-Masri is Not Wounded…

Posted by Exile on February 16, 2007

..nor is he dead or in custody.

Which is a bit of a shame really. I picked this up from Bill Roggio:

Last evening’s reports of the capture of al-Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Ayyub al-Masri appear to be incorrect. Brigadier General Abdul-Karim Khalaf, the spoksman for the Interior Ministry, initially reported al-Masri was wounded in a gunfight, and an aide was killed while trying to enter the city of Balad. Khalaf has since pulled back from this claim, while the deputy interior minister said the information could not be confirmed, as did the U.S. military. “We do not believe that he was either killed or wounded last night,” said Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Garver, a MNF-Iraq spokesman.

Oh Well. Better luck next time.
