HALF-BROTHER OF SADDAM CAPTURED

10:16 13 Apr 2003

According to this ABC (Australian) report, Kurdish TV says Watban Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti (5 of spades), one of Saddam’s half-brothers, has been captured by coalition forces while attempting to cross into Syria.

Also, Barzan Ibrahim Hasan al-Tikriti (5 of clubs) was reported killed in an airstrike. I don’t know how reliable Kurdish TV is, though. We’ll see.
