The article offers information on Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq who was killed in June 2006. His life was reportedly examined by investigative journalist Gamal Rahim. According to Rahim, studying al-Zarqawi's biography will reveal his networks, connections and divisions within the Sunni movement. Rahim published a biography of Zarqawi, entitled "Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Leader of al-Qaida in the Land of the Two Rivers." Zarqawi joined alliance with Osama Bin Laden, but he still maintained his independence.
