U.S. "spy" Beheaded By Islamist Group In Iraq: Website

AFP: 8/25/2004

DUBAI, Aug 25 (AFP) - An Islamist website posted photos Wednesday of a man it said was a US "spy" beheaded in Iraq by the Army of Ansar al-Sunna, which is linked to the Al-Qaeda terror network.

"A group of mujahedeen (Islamic fighters) managed to abduct a spy called Jamal Tewfik Salman, a naturalized American since 1980, who changed his name to Khaled Abdulmassih, and who confessed to having been recruited by US intelligence in Iraq to spy on the mujahedeen," the group said on its Internet site.

"He posed as a journalist to pursue his activities," it said, adding that he had been sent by US intelligence "among a Polish press group" to spy on Islamist fighters.

Five photos purporting to show a man in his forties having his throat slit were posted on the site (http://ansar-alsonnah.8k.com/). (Warnig Graphic photos.)

The Army of Ansar al-Sunna has claimed responsibility for a number of attacks in Iraq. On Sunday, it posted pictures of 12 men on its website it said were Nepalese taken hostage in Iraq.
