Al-Aribaya is reporting that Ibrahim Al-Douri, number six on the list of fifty-five most wanted by the US in Iraq, is dead, apparently of natural causes. This is not the first time Al-Douri has been reported dead

بغداد- اف ب
اعلن بيان صادر عن حزب البعث المنحل في العراق حصلت وكالة الأنباء الفرنسية على نسخة منه ان الرجل الثاني في النظام العراقي السابق عزة ابراهيم الدوري توفي الجمعة 11-11-2005م . وجاء في بيان نعي نائب رئيس مجلس قيادة الثورة في عهد صدام حسين "بعد قرابة خمسين عاما قضاها في النضال وفي خنادق

I don't read Arabic, but I'm assuming this is talking about Al Douri's death and other details about the man. The news was part of a Baath Party press-release.

A Baath party press release? I thought they were outlawed in Iraq. Where is their headquarters? This may turn out to be another false report of Al- Douri's death.

Thats almost like al-Zarqawi and that other dude(Zawahiri?) having been dead, not dead, killed, slaughtered, captured, lost limbs, photographed with the lost limbs magicaly not being lost and so on.

the TV news had a blurb about him expiring due to lengthly illness

he was Saddams' VP, and has a $10 million price on his head,
, you say he was 6th on the list,
they reported he was the "King-of-Clubs"
in the coalitions' famous deck of cards.

i womder if they used the Hoyle ranking of cards & suits, or some other?
because the King of Clubs would rank only 8th, if you use the rankings one finds in the Game of Bridge. [spade-heart-diamond-club] or so i thought

Go figure. No wonder we aren't sure if he's really dead or not.

AFP: Former Saddam deputy reportedly dies

Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri, the fugitive former number two of deposed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, reportedly died, as US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice paid a surprise visit as part of a regional tour.

There was a 10-million-dollar US bounty outstanding on Ibrahim, 63, who was said to be gravely ill with leukemia. Ibrahim was the most senior former Iraqi leader still at large since Saddam was captured in December 2003. He did much of Saddam's dirty work and commanded an entire army corps despite never having attended a military institution or school of higher learning

The death report came the day Rice visited Iraq to whip up participation in next month's general elections.
