(Newser) – Americans have killed a senior Al-Qaeda in Iraq deputy, but there's no evidence that  the leader of the group died in fighting between rival factions, as the Iraqi government had claimed Tuesday. Muharib Abdul Latif al-Jubouri, killed in a Tuesday raid, was a minister of information for Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

He was said to be involved in the kidnappings of American reporter Jill Carroll and Quaker Tom Fox. Despite recent reports, military officials say they have no evidence that Abu Ayyub al-Masri, the leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, is dead.
