Iraqi insurgents kill key US ally
A key Sunni ally of the US and Iraqi governments has been killed in a bomb attack in the city of Ramadi, Iraqi police and media say.
Abdul Sattar Abu Risha was the leader of an alliance of Sunni Arab tribes that rejected al-Qaeda because of its methods and worked with the US.
He was killed in a bomb attack near his home in Iraq’s western Anbar province.
Abu Risha was among a group of tribal leaders who met President George W Bush during his visit to Iraq last week.
