London Times May 15 Al-Zarqawi seriously wounded

An article dated May 15, 2005 (London time) in the London Times is reporting that Al-Zarqawi sought medical treatment Wednesday at a hospital in Ramadi. The doctor, who asked not to be named, said Al-Zarqawi was seriously wounded and bleeding very heavily and he had urged him to stay. The doctor further stated that Al-Zarqawi became agitated after he was told he would have to register and left. The well-dressed men who accompanied Al-Zarqawi threatened the doctor and told him he would be killed if he told anyone. According to the article, the doctor was detained by Americans on Friday.

So far, I have not seen any other news sources with this story. The article did mention the US forces operation near al-Qaim where many insurgents have been reported killed. The article did say the doctor had spoken to an Iraqi reporter and the story was supported by an Iraqi resistance commander who was in Ramadi to investigate the report. The journalists who are reporting this story from Baghdad are Hala Jaber and Ali Rifat.

Wow!
That'll be something if it's true.
Sometimes the British papers aghhh...are less than responsible.

Hi felis,

US papers are the same! That;s why I put at the bottom that no one else has reported this. I usually try to get at least two different sources. But I am hoping this to be true, I couldn't resist!!!
