Antoher one bites the dust.

Zarqawi propagandist is toes up
Iraqi security forces have killed a propaganda chief of al-Qaeda’s frontman in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the government said on Sunday. Security forces "killed the terrorist Adel Mujtaba, known as Abu Rim, who disseminated propaganda for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s terrorist network", it said in a statement.One of Abu Rim’s associates, Abu al-Izz, was also killed in the same raid on February 11, it added, without saying why it was only now releasing news of the raid. "Abu Rim specialised in creating terrorist websites which encouraged terrorism," the statement said. "He glorified the murder of innocent people and published images which included terrorists torturing hostages." Abu Rim is the third Zarqawi propaganda chief to be killed or detained after the alleged first and second in command, Abu Sufiyan and Husam Abdullah Muhsin al-Dulaymi, were respectively killed and detained, the statement added, without providing further details.
