Correction: The Arabic translation to this report contains an error. In the report, we mention an Iraqi woman “who may be related by marriage to Nidal `Arabiyyat, one of the key Jordanian followers of the late Abu Mus`ab al-Zarqawi.” This was rendered to Arabic to suggest, incorrectly, that she was the wife of Nidal `Arabiyyat.
