Talbani on the US-style "Most Wanted List"
Talbani on the List:
Iraqi President Jalal al-Talbani expressed reservations over a list of 41 most wanted people connected with the ex-regime and the insurgency against the government, including former president Saddam Hussein’s wife and daughter.
“I did not prefer putting the names of Sajeda (Saddam’s wife) and Raghad (his daughter) on the list as they are women,” Talbani told a news conference on Wednesday.
“I think there are a number of criminals on this list but I object to the way of demanding extraditing them. I would have preferred to do through the courts that issue arrest warrants,” a statement issued by the presidency on Thursday quoted Talbani as saying
