WASHINGTON (AP) -- Coalition forces in Iraq said Monday they captured the brother-in-law of toppled President Saddam Hussein.
Luay Khayrallaha, No. 152 on the coalition's most-wanted list, was taken into custody Friday, said the U.S. Central Command.
He is the brother of Saddam's wife, a companion of Saddam's son, Uday, and a representative of the former regime's intelligence and security apparatus, Central Command said in a statement.
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has said there is a list of some 200 former regime officials who coalition troops are looking for.
According to a revised list of Iraq's 55 most wanted former leaders, posted on the command's Web site Monday, U.S.-led forces have seized or won the surrenders of 22.
