US puts USD 10 mn bounty on Iraq al Qaeda leader

The US State Department has added Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri to its list of specially designated terrorists.



Washington: The United States has put the
leader of al Qaeda in Iraq on a terrorism blacklist and is
offering a USD 10 million reward for information on his
whereabouts.

The State Department said today it has added Ibrahim
Awwad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri, also known as Abu Du`a, to its
list of specially designated terrorists.

The move freezes any assets he may have in US
jurisdictions and bars Americans from providing him material
support.

At the same time, the department said its Rewards for
Justice program would pay USD 10 million for information
leading to his location.

Abu Du`a is accused of running al Qaeda in Iraq`s
large-scale operations, including an August attack on a
Baghdad mosque and a major strike against Iraqi police in May
in retaliation for the killing of Osama bin Laden.
