Baghdad, Aug 17, (VOI) – Interpol issued an arrest warrant against Raghad, former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein’s daughter, upon a request from the Iraqi government.

“Raghad Saddam Hussein al-Majid, 38, is wanted by the Iraqi government on several charges of terrorism and crimes against innocent people,” according to a statement published on Interpol’s official web site and received by the independent news agency Voices of Iraq (VOI).

The site called on anyone who has information about Raghad’s whereabouts to report to the local police station in their city. Raghad lives in exile outside Iraq, with her children in the Jordanian capital Amman, hosted by the Hashemite royal family.

The last time she was seen publicly was during a popular rally at the professional syndicates compound in Amman to protest the execution of her father on December 31, 2006.
