Iran Says It's Happy al-Zarqawi Is Dead
June 11, 2006

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran, whose relations with Iraq have warmed since the ouster of Saddam Hussein, said Sunday it was pleased about the death of al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

"It is natural that we, like the Iraqi people, are happy from this occurrence," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told reporters.

Iran, a majority Shiite Muslim country, has close ties to the Shiite parties that now dominate Iraq's government.

Al-Zarqawi, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike Wednesday, was the most wanted leader of the Sunni-dominated insurgency in Iraq.

Makes you wonder about that story about Bush making a deal with the Iranians in order to 'get' Zarqawi?

1. Doesn't make me wonder.
Zarqawi was a Jordanian Sunni, who killed mostly Shiiites in Iraq - Iran's allies.
