Update: From News 24 out of South Africa..
The statement, posted by the group’s media co-ordinator, Abu Maysarah al-Iraqi, didn’t say how or when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was injured.
Al-Iraqi is known to be the group’s media co-ordinator, but there was no way to confirm if he’d posted the statement himself.
“Let the near and far know that the injury of our leader is an honour, and a cause to close in on the enemies of God, and a reason to increase the attacks against them,” the statement said.
