Sunni leader killed in Iraq

A key Sunni ally of the US and Iraqi governments has been killed in a bomb attack in the city of Ramadi, Iraqi state television has reported.

Abdul Sattar Abu Risha was the leader of an alliance of Sunni Arab tribes that opposed al-Qaeda.

He was killed in a bomb attack near his home in Ramadi, provincial capital of the western province of Anbar.

Abu Risha was among a group of tribal leaders who met President George W Bush during his visit to Iraq last week.
