The head of an umbrella group for Iraqi insurgents says the US killing of the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq was a "great loss," but one that will strengthen the militants' determination, according to an audio tape broadcast by Al-Jazeera on Friday. The pan-Arab satellite channel said the tape bears the voice of Abu Abdullah Rashid al-Baghdadi, the head of the Mujahedeen Shura Council, which groups five Iraqi insurgent organizations including al-Qaida in Iraq. The tape is an attempt to rally support for the insurgents after last week's killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the notorious leader of al-Qaida in Iraq. But significantly the speaker does not mention the man that al-Qaida in Iraq has chosen to replace al-Zarqawi, Abu Hamza al-Muhajer.
