DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Feb. 5 — Iraqi security services
revealed their “most wanted list” of 60 people on Sunday, with Raghad, the
eldest daughter of Saddam Hussein, on it.
The 60 people wanted are on suspicion of belonging to the Islamic State
group, al-Qaeda or the al-Baath Party. According to Saudi-owned Al Arabiya
TV channel, Raghad responded in a telephone interview that she has pledged
to confront those who “insult her” by suing them back.
Raghad fled to Jordan along with her sister, Rana, and their children in
July 2003. Since 2006, she has been on the list which the new Iraqi
government is seeking to prosecute for supporting violence. However, the
Jordanian government has turned down the request by Iraq to hand over
Raghad, insisting that to do so would violate Arab traditions of
hospitality. – XINHUA
