Saddam's Vice President Escapes

Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, Saddam Hussein's former vice president, escaped an Iraqi security raid on him in Salaheddin province, north of Baghdad.

Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri escaped an overnight raid last week on his hideout. The raid was conducted as a result of an intelligence report that al-Douri and his aides were holding a meeting in the village.

The Iraq security force did not find al-Douri, but seized documents which describe the links between al-Douri and al-Qaeda as well as other insurgent groups in Iraq.
