Al Qaida i Irak klaget søndag på TV-kanalen Al Jazeera fordi den gjengir amerikanernes erklæringer, men ikke mujahedins.
«Where are you heading, Jazeera? Why this hostility toward the mujahideen (holy warriors)?» the group led by Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi said, according to a statement posted on an Islamist Web site.
«All the American army statements are carried and accepted but no one carries the mujahideen’s side.»
It said Al Jazeera had reported U.S. statements that its forces had killed 50 insurgents in an operation underway in western Iraq, but did not broadcast the group’s statement that it had shot down eight U.S. helicopters.
«Where is the claimed balance?» the statement said. (reuters)
