No. 18 on Most-Wanted List Arrested in Iraq (Fox News, April 21, 2003)
Muhammad Hamza al-Zubaydi, who played a key role in the brutal suppression of the Shiite Muslim uprising of 1991, was arrested Monday in Iraq, the U.S. Central Command said.

Al-Zubaydi, a former member of the Iraqi Revolutionary Command Council and central Euphrates regional commander, was No. 18 on a list of the 55 most-wanted figures from Saddam Hussein's regime. [...]

He was the queen of spades in the deck of former Iraqi officials distributed to U.S. forces.
