    The Iraqi Defence Ministry spokesman says the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Ayyub al-Masri, has been arrested in the northern city of Mosul.
    Spokesman Mohammed al-Askari says the arrest of al-Masri, also known as Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, was confirmed to him by the Iraqi commander of the province.

    There was no immediate confirmation or comment from US forces on the arrest.

    Al-Askari did not say when the al-Qaeda leader was arrested. News of the arrest was also reported by Iraqi state television.
