The Tightening Noose: al-Zarqawi's Propaganda Chief Killed

Iraqi security forces have killed or captured three insurgents producing websites showing hostages being tortured, officials said.

The government said two alleged terrorists were killed in a Feb. 11 raid in Baghdad. It identified the two as Abu al-Izz and Adel Mujtaba, known as Abu Rim, who the government said ''disseminated propaganda'' for the al-Qaida leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and created ''terrorist Web sites.'' It did not name the sites.
