IRAQI POLICE CAPTURE #41
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi police captured one of the most wanted people from Iraqi's former regime Sunday in Baghdad. The National Iraqi Police Service Emergency Response Unit arrested Muhammad Zimam abd al-Razzaq al-Sadun, number 41 on the Iraqi "top 55" most wanted list, at approximately 2 p.m. in a residence in Baghdad's Al-Saydea district. He was hiding in an upstairs room.
The arrest followed an Iraqi police investigation and a series of coordinated raids by the National Iraqi Police Service Emergency Response Unit that led to al-Sadun. A former Central Ba'ath Party regional chairman for the Ninawah and Ta'mim governorates, al-Sadun was turned over to Coalition Force officials and is being held at an undisclosed location.
