Al-Qaida cell in action in Iraq

More proof of an Al-Qaida/Saddam link.

(Herald Sun) BRITISH military interrogators claim captured Iraqi soldiers have told them that al-Qaida terrorists are fighting against allied troops near Basra.

At least a dozen members of Osama bin Laden's network are in the town of Az Zubayr, where they are co-ordinating grenade and gun attacks on coalition positions, according to the Iraqi prisoners of war.
A senior British military source inside Iraq said: "The information we have received from PoWs today is that an al-Qaida cell may be operating in Az Zubayr, near Basra in the south. There are possibly around a dozen of them and that is obviously a matter of concern to us."
British forces were believed to be preparing a military strike on the base where the al-Qaida unit was understood to be holed up.
If confirmed, it would be the first proof of a direct link between Saddam's regime and Osama bin Laden.

Sure to be ignored by the anti-liberation anti-war protestors
