FILE In this Wednesday April 21, 2010 file photo, Iraqi soldiers are seen at the site of a joint U.S. Iraqi raid that reportedly killed Abu Omar al Baghdadi and Abu Ayyub al Masri, two top ranking al Qaida figures, about six miles (10 kilometers) southwest of Tikrit. An al Qaida front group in Iraq has declared in a statement posted on the Internet that its two top figures have been killed. The statement Sunday April 25, 2010, provided the first confirmation from the terror network of the Iraqi and U.S. governments' claim April 19 that the two men were killed in a joint operation while hiding at a safehouse near the city of Tikrit, north of Baghdad.
