Hussein ex-aide’s body is missing
The body of Tariq Aziz, Saddam Hussein’s former top aide who died last week in prison in Iraq, went missing in Baghdad en route to Jordan for burial, a relative said.
Aziz’s daughter Zeinab said she was told by her mother — who was in Iraq and waited to accompany the casket to Jordan — that his body went missing at the Baghdad International Airport.
No further details were immediately known.
A Royal Jordanian Airlines official confirmed the last f light left Baghdad for the day without the casket. Aziz died in Nasiriya, where he was awaiting execution.
