The Iraqi government has compiled a detailed list of the 29 most-wanted insurgents and terrorists, offering rewards of $50,000 to $25 million for their capture.
The wanted men are in Iraq and neighboring states and are being sought for "funding and coordinating terrorist operations inside Iraq in an attempt to disrupt the country's march toward democracy and autonomous government," according to a U.S. Central Command statement accompanying the list.
We obtained a copy of the list that is the first public disclosure by the Iraqi or U.S. governments identifying the terrorists and former regime officials behind the insurgency. Topping the list of most-wanted former regime officials is Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri, the former vice chairman of Saddam Hussein's Revolutionary Command Council.
"Al-Duri is believed to be the current leader of the New Regional Command and the New Ba'ath Party," the statement said. "As such he provides guidance, financial support and coordination of the former regime insurgency."
