'Most-wanted' posters of Saddam, dead sons released
The coalition has already paid a $30 million reward for a tip on the whereabouts of Uday and Qusay Hussein.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Coalition officials Wednesday released a new series of "most-wanted" posters for Saddam Hussein, announcing the $25 million reward for the former Iraqi leader whose image is shown next to photos of his sons, killed last month by U.S. forces.
Iraqi police and U.S. soldiers in Baghdad will distribute thousands of leaflets featuring the images, as well as other brochures offering rewards of up to $10,000 for information about anti-coalition activities, according to the Coalition Provisional Authority.
The two most-wanted posters show a picture of Saddam's face, next to images of his sons with large X's over their faces, offering up to $25 million for "any information leading to the arrest or proof of death of Saddam Hussein."
In an effort to show the coalition will keep its word on the reward money, one of the posters notes that the $15 million reward for each of Saddam's sons was collected.
U.S. forces received a tip from an Iraqi informant 24 hours before attacking the sons' hideout in the northern city of Mosul on July 22. The informant was paid $30 million for the information.
According to the Coalition Provisional Authority, tip-offs from Iraqi citizens have led to the arrests of numerous Saddam loyalists since major combat ended, including three former Fedayeen members this week.
Iraqi informants have also led coalition forces to a number of weapons caches, as well as helped foil terrorist attacks, according to the CPA.
