Group announces the "martyrdom" of Abu-Mus'ab Al-Zarqawi - promises Bin Ladin it would continue on the path of jihad

On 8 June, "Muhib al-Jihad" posted to the Islamic Renewal Organization website a statement issued by the Mujahidin Shura Council in Iraq [Majlis Shura al-Mujahidin fi al-Iraq] in which the group announced the "martyrdom" of Abu-Mus'ab Al-Zarqawi and promised Bin Ladin that it would continue on the path of jihad, which he had designed for Abu-Mus'ab al-Zarqawi. The statement was attributed to "Abu Abd-al-Rahman al-Iraqi, deputy amir of Al-Qa'ida Organization in the Land of the Two Rivers," and "The Media Division of al-Mujahidin Shura Council in the Land of the Two Rivers."

The Islamic Renewal Organization is the website of the Saudi dissident group headed by Muhammad al-Mas'ari and based in the United Kingdom.
