Saddam Hussein’s aide Izzat al-Douri dies in Iraq
Al-Douri’s death announced by the banned Arab Socialist Baath Party in Iraq

By Ali Jawad

BAGHDAD (AA) – The Arab Socialist Baath Party on Monday announced the death of Izzat al-Douri, the right-hand of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, at the age of 78.

This came in an audio recording via the Facebook account of the banned party in Iraq.

The Iraqi authorities have not yet confirmed al-Douri's death.

Al-Douri was the second-most senior figure in Saddam Hussein’s regime and had been wanted by the US.

The last appearance of al-Douri was in a video footage in April 2019, as he conveyed a message to Kuwait apologizing for the Iraqi invasion in 1990.
