Amnesty for attackers? In an effort to end the insurgency, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is likely to propose pardons for insurgents who killed Americans rather than Iraqis, a top advisor tells the Washington Post. At a press conference, Maliki himself said that amnesty could cover those "who weren't involved in the shedding of Iraqi blood."
Al-Qaida documents? Iraqi security officials say they've discovered a cache of al-Qaida documents and computer files in the rubble of the house where Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed and inside other safe houses. Iraqi National Security Advisor Mouwafak al-Rubaie says the discoveries include a "thumb drive" in Zarqawi's pocket and could lead to "the beginning of the end of al-Qaida in Iraq."
Post-Zarqawi raids: In the days since Zarqawi's death, U.S. and Iraqi military teams have carried out 452 raids and killed 104 insurgents, the U.S. military says. Baghdad remains in a security lockdown, Agence France-Presse says, with 50,000 U.S. and Iraqi troops patrolling the streets. Despite the crackdown, seven bodies were discovered in Iraq's capital this morning.
