BAGHDAD, Iraq_U.S. forces have arrested a senior al-Qaida terrorist and
personal associate of the group's new leader, the top U.S. military
spokesman in Iraq said Thursday.

The man, who was not identified, was arrested Tuesday and was the leader of
assassination, kidnapping and bomb making cells in Baghdad. He also played a
key role in al-Qaida's activities in the Anbar city of Fallujah before it
was attacked by U.S. troops in November 2004, Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell
said.
