A US counterterrorism official said Monday that US special operations forces killed the head of a Syrian network that funneled foreign fighters, weapons and cash into Iraq. The raid Sunday targeted the Syrian border home of Abu Ghadiyah, the nickname for the head of the single most important foreign fighter cell that has bedeviled Iraq since the US invasion in 2003, according to the official, who spoke Monday on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.
