Lebanese army bags a big one...

Fatah al-Islam chief 'among siege dead'
September 03, 2007 - THE head of Fatah al-Islam, Shaker al-Abssi, was killed today in fighting with the Lebanese army at a refugee camp and his body had been identified, an army officer told the Agence France-Presse news agency.
Quote:
"The body of Shaker al-Abssi is among the corpses of Islamists taken to the state-run hospital in Tripoli,'' said the officer, who did not wish to be identified. Several medical examiners were dispatched to the hospital to view the bodies of Islamists taken there, he said.

Lebanese minister Ahmad Fatfat told Al-Jazeera television, monitored in Dubai, that it appeared Abssi had been killed in the siege. "Information that reached me about 1- hours ago (about 4.30am AEST) confirms up to 90 per cent that several witnesses identified the body of Mr Shaker al-Abssi at the government hospital in Tripoli,'' Mr Fatfat said.

"But further confirmations are required, additional witnesses have been called, and DNA tests are being carried out in order to have a definite confirmation before an official statement is issued,'' he said. Mr Fatfat is minister for youth and sports and close to Prime Minister Fouad Siniora.
