Iraq says captured alleged insurgent leader
Iraqi forces captured the alleged leader of a Sunni Arab insurgent group, a Baghdad security spokesman said on Sunday, suggesting that he also had links to Iraqi politicians.

Baghdad forces spokesman Qassim al-Moussawi said Thayer Kadhim Abid al-Suraiwi, the suspected commander of Sunni Arab group Ansar al-Sunna, was captured last month in west Baghdad.

Moussawi claimed "Suraiwi had accepted receiving support from some politicians, but couldn't name any, pending investigation."

"They work inside Iraq and unfortunately some of them are part of the political process," he said.
