Unfortunately I’ve not mastered the technique of posting articles, but there is some interesting news about the two car blasts in Arbil. If you do a google search on "Ansar al-Sunna" you come up with a couple of interesting articles.


"AN Islamist group, Ansar al-Sunna, with alleged links to al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility today for the deadly twin suicide attacks in the northern Iraqi Kurdish city of Arbil, according to an Islamist Internet site."

>>snip<<


"A television station owned by the PUK said today a Yemeni had been arrested in connection with the Arbil bombings, the deadliest attacks in Iraq since the ouster of Saddam Hussein's regime last April."

"The suspect was seized in a hotel in the northern oil centre of Kirkuk and explosives were found in his possession, the station said."

There's also some info in a CBS story about a group called "Jaish Ansar al-Sunni" which seems like it may be the same group. They apparently put out a rather sophisticated recruiting video and is called a new group.
