Zarqawi Captured?

Bulgarian news is reporting the capture of a Zarqawi look-a-like:

A man quite resembling to world's most wanted man Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was reportedly captured in the outskirts of Fallujah, RIA Novosti news agency informed quoting Elaf online edition.

The web source reported that US militaries are currently carrying out DNA-checks over the identity of the captured man.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is suspected to be the mastermind of one of most cruel militant groups in Iraq, Tawhid al-Jihad. It has reaped the black fame of beheading mercilessly its hostages, including two Bulgarian truck drivers.

It wouldn't be wise to get hopes up, but potentially very good news for the troops and Iraqis.

Update, 10/16/04, 7:27 PM EST: Nope. U.S. military says reports "not credible."
