US troops killed an al-Qaida leader behind the bombing of twin minarets at Iraq's prized Golden Dome shrine in Samarra, the military said Sunday. Haitham Sabah Shaker Muhammad al-Badri was killed in a US operation Thursday east of Samarra, the US military said in a statement e-mailed to The Associated Press. The military said al-Badri was the al-Qaida in Iraq emir of Salahuddin province, and the mastermind responsible for the bombing of the Askariya mosque's minarets on June 13.
