** FILE ** In this Tuesday, April 20, 2010, file photo, Iraqi policemen search the site of a joint U.S-Iraqi raid that killed Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and Abu Ayyub al-Masri, two top-ranking al Qaeda figures, about six miles (10 kilometers) southwest of Tikrit. The first online statement from the new leader of al Qaeda's affiliate in Iraq claims that the militant network is returning to the old strongholds from which it was driven by U.S. forces and their Sunni allies prior to the American withdrawal at the end of last year, and that it is preparing operations to free prisoners and assassinate court officials.
