Iraq says security forces capture Zarqawi aide

This has been a good week for rounding up bad guys. The more we catch the more quality intelligence we gleen.

BAGHDAD, May 7 (Reuters) - Iraqi security forces have captured an aide to Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the al Qaeda leader in Iraq, the government said on Saturday

A government statement said Iraqi forces arrested Ghassan al-Rawi, identified as the militant leader of the western town of Rawa, in late April.

It identified Rawi as a Zarqawi lieutenant in the western town who facilitated meetings for senior officials in Zarqawi's group. It said two of his assistants were also seized.

The noose is definately tightening, make no mistake about it.
