CAIRO, Egypt (AP) – Iraqi police arrested a nephew of Saddam Hussein in Baghdad Wednesday, charging that he served as a top financier of Iraq’s insurgency, senior Iraqi security officials said.

Yasir Sabhawi Ibrahim, son of Saddam’s half brother Sabhawi Ibrahim Hasan al-Tikriti, was arrested in a Baghdad apartment, several days after Syrian authorities forced him to return to Iraq, the officials told The Associated Press in Cairo in a telephone interview. They spoke on condition of anonymity.
