Algerian Islamofascist...

Gets on board the "soul train"...

Samir Saioud, also known as Samir Moussaab, was killed in fighting in Si Mustapha, east of the capital Algiers, security sources told APS news agency.

Saioud was believed to be the number-two of an al-Qaeda-linked Islamist group, the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC).

Earlier this month, the group claimed responsibility for a series of car bombings in the capital, Algiers, including one near the prime minister's office.

Reports said he was also accused of involvement in plots to assassinate Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf.
The bigger story is that Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi is apparently the mastermind behind the July 7 suicide bombings in London and assorted terrorist plots against Britain.
