WASHINGTON – Coalition forces captured two more wanted Iraqis over the weekend, bringing to 27 the number of the top 55 former members of Saddam Hussein's (search) regime in custody, U.S. Central Command said Tuesday.
The men captured Saturday were low on the list but their arrests mean nearly half of the top suspects are being held and interrogated by American forces.
Also captured was No. 55, Sad Abd al-Majid al-Faysal (search). He was the Baath Party regional chairman for the area around Tikrit, Saddam's hometown and power base.
