Saddam Hussein’s Daughter, Raghad on Security Services Blacklist in Iraq

Iraqi security services released on Sunday the names of the 60 most wanted people. Among them is Raghad, the daughter of Saddam Hussein.


Authorities said the 60 wanted people are suspected of belonging to the Islamic State group, Al Qaeda or the Baath party of former dictator Saddam Hussein.

According to the Al Jazeera news channel, this list includes 28 members of the Islamic State, 12 al-Qaeda and 20 Baathists, with their names, functions and the crimes of which they are accused.


To the surprise of many, the name of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, head of the Islamic State is not there. Questioned by AFP, a senior security official refused to give reasons.

“These are the most wanted terrorists by the authorities and the security services. This is the first time we publish these names, which until now was secret, “ said the source.

Raghad fled to Jordan with her sister Rana and their children in July 2003. Since 2006, she has been on the list of people whom the new Iraqi government wants to prosecute for inciting violence.

However, Jordan refuses to hand over Raghad to Iraqis on the grounds that it is a violation of the deeply rooted traditions of hospitality.
