The US Department of Defense has released a video clip purporting to show the bombing raid from yesterday that killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, al-Qaeda leader in Iraq.

The two minute video is being shown on US news network CNN, with Maj Gen Bill Caldwell explaining the raid in which two US Air Force Lockheed Martin F-16s dropped two bombs on a safe house near Baquba on Wednesday night.

Six people including al-Zarqawi and his spiritual mentor Sheik Abd-al-Rahman, were killed in the strike, the USAF says.
