Saudi Who Died While Fighting in Iraq Commemorated in New Release

( )
The second issue of an electronic newsletter dedicated to Saudis who die while fighting in Iraq has been released on a militant Islamist wesbite.

The five-page newsletter entitled "The martyrs of the two holy places [Saudi Arabia] in the land of the two rivers [Iraq]" recounts the story of a man called Talal Al Meteiri from Riyadh. Al Meteiri, whose alias was Abu Nawaf, participated in several attacks against Iraqi and U.S. forces and killed several people before being killed himself while attacking Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, according to the newsletter. It boasts about al Meteiri's many contributions and says he was married and had two daughters. The release ends with poetry about jihad in Iraq.
