Fatah al-Islam said its leader and a top commander were heading to Iraq to join insurgents there when Lebanese troops killed them over the weekend, the SITE monitoring service said.

The group confirmed the killing of the emir (leader) of Fatah al-Islam, Abdul Rahman Awadh, and Abu Bakr Mubarak, a SITE translation of a statement posted on jihadist forums said.
"They were martyred at the hands of the intelligence services of the Lebanese state, while they were on their way to the state of glory, the Islamic State of Iraq," the statement said.
The militants' statement noted that Awadh had sent his son to Iraq two months ago to carry out a suicide bombing, SITE said.
