Al-Zarqawi Autopsy Report released

An autopsy was performed on Al-Zarqawi and his spiritual advisor, Sheik Abdul-Rahman, in order to keep down misinformation and propaganda. It gives them a definitive answer as to the specific cause of death.

If you remember, there were reports that U.S. Soldiers were seen beating his body and 'blood came out of his nose'. But, the autopsy report states he died from lung injuries.

“Blast waves from the two bombs caused tearing, bruising of the lungs and bleeding,” he said. “There was no evidence of firearm injuries.”

U.S. troops arrived at 6:40 p.m. and found Iraqi police at the site. He said a coalition medic treated al-Zarqawi, who lapsed in and out of consciousness.

“At 7:04 p.m. on 7 June, Zarqawi was dead,” Caldwell said.
