US, Iraq sign deal to settle Saddam-era claims

Iraq have signed an agreement to settle claims of Americans who say they were abused the United by Saddam Hussein`s regime.



Baghdad: The American Embassy spokesman in Iraq says States and Iraq have signed an agreement to settle claims of Americans who say they were abused the United by Saddam Hussein`s regime.

David Ranz gave no details Friday of the agreement, including who the specific claimants are or the dollar amount involved.

A number of Americans have sued Iraq for incidents that happened during Saddam`s more than 20 years in power, alleging abuse and mistreatment.

The Americans kept up their legal fight after Saddam was overthrown and a new government came to power.
Ranz said Iraq still has to go through several steps for the agreement to be finalized. If completed, it would represent a significant step forward for Iraq and an end to years of legal battles.
