Iraq released a most-wanted list of 41 names Sunday...
The largest reward was $10 million for Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, a former top official in the Saddam regime who has eluded capture since the U.S.-led invasion more than three years ago. Al-Douri was believed to have played a major role in launching the insurgency.
The government also offered a $50,000 reward for Abu Ayyub al-Masri, who replaced al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi after his death in a June 7 U.S. airstrike northeast of Baghdad. The announcement came just two days after the U.S. administration approved a reward up to $5 million in exchange for al-Masri, whose real name is Abu Hamza al-Muhajer.
Follow the socio-economic angle.
AND OH, BY THE WAY
The national security adviser also said authorities were closing in on the Egyptian-born al-Masri.
“We were able to infiltrate his network. You will hear news within the coming weeks,” he said.
SO NO NEED TO WASTE YOUR TIME
