US forces kill al Qaeda's leader in Mosul
The emir, who has not been named, was killed after a Special Operations Forces team form Task Force 88, the hunter-killer teams assigned to take down terrorists in Iraq, stormed a building in Mosul. The commandos opened fire after one of the terrorists attempted to detonate his suicide vest was shot and another reached for a pistol. A woman with the group attempted to detonate the vest on the dead al Qaeda operative.
Mosul is considered AQI's last stronghold in Iraq, making this a very significant event. Well done, guys.
