Paris, Jan. 15 – A photo showing Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian born mastermind behind the latest spate of bombings in Iraq, standing with senior commanders of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) was seen by Jordan’s King Abdullah II last month, according to an Algerian journalist.

“The Islamic Republic’s Foreign Minister did not attend the Amman conference of Iraq’s neighbors in response to accusations made by Jordan’s King Abdullah II”, Atwan Tazakrat on Thursday told US-based Radio Farda.

“Fifteen days earlier, Jordanian intelligence services gave King Abdullah II documents along with a picture of a number of heads of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards standing next to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi who was welcomed by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards upon arrival from Afghanistan to Iran after the US attack on Afghanistan” he said.

He added, “al-Zarqawi stayed in Iran for three to four months, and Iranian officials did not deny his presence. They provided him with a fake passport with which he traveled to Syria where in mid-2002 he plotted the assassination of an American citizen”.

In response to a question on whether or not the photo had been published, Tazakrat said, “This photo was never publicly distributed but I was able to see it. The source who confirmed to me that the Jordanian King had seen the photo is credible”.
