Al-Qaeda 'coming to end in Iraq'

BBC NEWS | Middle East | Al-Qaeda 'coming to end in Iraq': "Mr Rubaie said a pocket hard-drive, a laptop and documents were found in the debris after the strike.

The documents and records revealed the names and whereabouts of other al-Qaeda in Iraq leaders, he said, adding that more information has since been found in raids on other insurgent hideouts.

'We believe that this is the beginning of the end of al-Qaeda in Iraq,' Mr Rubaie said.

'They did not anticipate how powerful the Iraqi security forces are and how the government is on the attack now.'

One of the documents showed that Zarqawi was planning to widen the rift between the US and Iran by carrying out attacks on US interests falsely attributed to Iran, the prime minister's office said."
