U.S. Detains Wife and Daughter of Wanted Iraqi General

The American military said today its forces had detained the wife and daughter of a former top Iraqi general, Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri, who it believes is at large in Iraq and coordinating some of the attacks against foreign occupation troops. A spokesman for the 4th Infantry Division, Master Sgt. Robert Cargie, said the women were picked up at a residence in Samarra, north of Baghdad, on Tuesday. The son of General Duri’s physician was also detained, and all three were being regarded as material witnesses, he added. “They may be able to shed light on any situation that will improve our general position of finding al-Duri or anyone else,” Sergeant Cargie said. There was no indication the general was in the area at the time. General Duri was the Iraqi military’s northern regional commander. As a top adviser to Saddam Hussein, he is the second most-wanted man in Iraq. Although he is No. 6 on the list of the 55 most wanted Iraqis, he is the highest-ranking former member of Mr. Hussein’s inner circle still at large. Full Story
