In other news, Iraqi National Security Adviser Muwaffaq al-Rubay'i today told RFE/RL that Iraqi forces are "close" to finding Abu Mus'ab al-Zarqawi, the country's most-wanted insurgent.
"I cannot go into details on this matter for security reasons but I can conclude from this that we are close to al-Zarqawi and close to the inner circle of al-Zarqawi," al-Rubay'i said. "It is probable that the next few weeks will see some good news for our people."
Earlier, insurgents killed the head of a police station in Baghdad and several other policemen traveling with him.
