Izzat Ibrahim, right-hand man to Saddam Hussein and the next most wanted Iraqi leader, has been killed or captured in a U.S. raid near the city of Kirkuk, Iraqi Governing Council sources said on Tuesday.

'There was a major action against a highly suspicious objective last night in Kirkuk and it is very possible that Izzat Ibrahim has been captured or killed,' said one member of the Council, Mowaffaq al-Rubaie, adding he had been in contact with U.S. forces.

Another high-level source in the U.S.-appointed Council said he had been informed that Ibrahim had been captured in the raid.

UPDATE: Earlier stories incorrect. We didn't get him.
