U.S. and Iraqi forces have arrested Abdullah Al-Jabouri, former governor of Diyala on charges of coordinating the activities of al-Qaeda, Baath party and Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization and also because of being involved in terror and sabotaging operations. Foad al-Taaei, director of al-Khales Information Office in Diyala, said to Al-Hayat newspaper: "U.S. and Iraqi forces have arrested Abdullah al-Jabouri who was formerly acting as the province's governor. He was the leader of an al-Qaeda team in the area of Sa'diah al-Jabal, mostly comprised of Al-Jabour tribes." "He was also the coordinator of activities between the MKO and members of the tribal elements of Al-Sa'dieh. He provided them with financial and logistical support," he added. "His arrest warrant had been issued earlier but it had not been executed since he was in London. He was arrested by U.S. and Iraqi forces as soon as he entered his house near al-Sa'diah district." After the news of arrest was announced, a man introducing himself as Al-Jabouri, the former governor of Diyala, called Al-Hayat newspaper and denied the reports. Meanwhile, Multinational Forces (MNF) in Iraq said in a statement- a copy of which available to Al-Hayat- that "U.S. special forces, along with Iraqi forces, have arrested the former governor of Diyala." "Intelligence reports indicate that the detained man has been in touch with terrorist groups of Al-Qaeda, Baath Party and Mojahedin-e Khalq organization and has been involved in terror, murder and unrest," the statement adds.
