    A new Palestinian militant group whose members have been trained to carry out rocket-launching and bombing operations was reportedly formed in the southern refugee camp of Ain el-Hilweh to carry out among others an attack on the Egyptian embassy.

    Saddam's Half Brother Caught February 27, 2005 BAGHDAD, Iraq — Iraqi security forces captured Saddam Hussein's (search) half brother and former adviser on Sunday, government officials said, dealing a blow to an insurgency that some Iraqi officials claim the much-sought fugitive was helping organize and fund. Sabawi Ibrahim al-Hassan (search) was No. 36 on the list of 55 most-wanted Iraqis released by U.S. authorities after American troops invaded Iraq in March 2003, and among a recent group of 29 most-wanted supporters of insurgents in Iraq. The U.S. had a $1 million bounty on his head. Officials in Allawi's office, speaking...
