DUBAI (AFP) - Al-Jazeera satellite news channel broadcast a video recording Sunday of what it said was one of the most wanted members of ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's regime still on the run.
The Qatar-based network gave no date for the purported footage of elite Republican Guards chief Saifeddin Fulayh Hassan Taha al-Rawi, who was number 14 on the most wanted list drawn up by the US military for the 2003 invasion.
Rawi, who carries a one million dollar US bounty on his head, was also jack of spades on the "deck of cards" of 55 most wanted suspects distributed by the Pentagon at the outset of the invasion.
In the footage shown, Rawi accuses US forces of using neutron and phosphorus bombs during their assault on Baghdad airport ahead of the April 9 capture of the Iraqi capital.
