Iraq: Baghdadi Killed Again?

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Iraq, Breaking News, War & Conflict

“Early afternoon today news came in that Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, chief of the so called Islamic State in Iraq has been killed in Ghazaliya district in western Baghdad.
Uncertainty about the identity of the killed senior terrorist was soon in place, while the Iraqi interior ministry insists it was al-Baghdadi, US officials think otherwise, they confirmed that a senior al-Qaeda operative name Muharib Abdul Latif al-Jubouri was killed though.
So were Jubouri and Baghdadi the same person?” writes [1]Iraqi blogger Omar.
