TRANSCRIPT - DOORSTOP INTERVIEW
Commonwealth Parliamentary Offices, Sydney

Senator Robert Hill
Well there was very good news overnight. You know we were thrilled when we heard from the Americans that they'd confirmed his identity. They were good enough to let us know before they made any public statements. It's a great blow for the insurgents, it's a reward for the coalition that has obviously been suffering considerable casualties and I think a great morale boost for the Iraqi people. They really know that he's now gone forever and they can go about their future with much greater confidence.
Journalist
Were there any Australian personnel involved with the capture?
Senator Hill
No, not that I know of, I don't think so.
