Abu Ghraib prison attacked

Today, approximately 50 insurgents will attack Abu Ghraib prison in a well-planned attack.

Al Qaeda's offshoot in Iraq later is reported to have posted a statement on an Islamist website claiming responsibility. "Three martyrs were ... [killed] while infiltrating the infidels' fortresses and seven other martyrdom seekers went to heaven after they blew up the enemy," the statement said. "Your brothers in the Al Qaeda Organisation [for Holy War] in Iraq launched a well-planned attack on Abu Ghraib prison, where Muslim women and men are held," the groups said in a separate statement.
