Raghad Hussein, daughter of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein has been placed on the country’s most-wanted list.
Raghad is one of 60 individuals placed on the list for alleged connections to the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS), al-Qaeda or the Baath Party.
The list, seen by AFP, also features 28 suspected ISIL fighters, 12 from Al-Qaeda and 20 from the Baath party, giving details of the roles they allegedly play in their organisations, the alleged crimes of which they are suspected, and, in most cases, photographs.
All are Iraqis, apart from Maan Bashour, a Lebanese man accused of recruiting fellow citizens to fight in Iraq.
“These are the terrorists most wanted by the judicial authorities and the security services,” a security official said to AFP. “This is the first time we publish these names which, until now, were secret.”
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.
