Iraq - al-Qaeda leader 'wounded'

Iraqi police have wounded the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq and killed his top aide, a spokesman for the Iraqi Interior Ministry has told CNN. The spokesman said Iraqi police have the aide's body but would not comment if Abu Ayyub al-Masri was captured. The U.S. military, who wrongly reported last October that al-Masri had been killed, has so far made no comment on the report. They referred reporters to the Iraqi government. CNN has not independently confirmed the report.
