Egypt: Iraq Diplomat Is Dead
http://www.cbsnews.com/track/rss/stories/2003/02/24/ira...

(CBS/AP) Al Qaeda's wing in Iraq claimed Thursday it had killed Egypt's top envoy who was abducted by gunmen last weekend and warned it would go after "as many ambassadors as we can" to punish countries that support Iraq's U.S.-backed leadership.

An Egyptian official in Cairo said Egypt would temporarily close its mission here and has recalled its staff.

The announcement from Iraq's most feared terror group appeared on an al Qaeda-linked Web site and featured a brief video showing the blindfolded diplomat, Ihab al-Sherif, wearing a polo shirt. The video did not show his death, but the statement promised more details later.
