Både Zarqawi og Ansar al-Sunna la ut bilder av halshogginger fredag. Al-Sunna sa de hadde drept en svenske og en brite.
Gruppen, som er en av de mest bestialske, dro selv sammenligningen med slaktingen av dyr som muslimer foretar i disse dager, for å komme nærmere Allah. Implisitt: slakting av vantro gjør samme nytten.
The Al-Qaeda linked Army of Ansar al-Sunna repeated on Friday that it had killed a Briton and a Swede in Iraq, apparently by beheading them, according to a statement posted on its website.
The two men were «slaughtered» at a time when Muslims everywhere seek to «get closer to God by slaughtering sacrificial (sheep),» said the statement attributed to the group, which has taken credit for some of the most gruesome attacks in Iraq.
It was the second statement in as many days by the group saying it had killed a Briton and a Swede after abducting them in the oil-refining city of Beiji north of Baghdad. The authenticity of the statements could not be confirmed. (AFP)
