Iraq: US hands over Tariq Aziz, other detainees

BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraq's deputy justice minister says U.S. authorities have handed over 55 members of Saddam Hussein's former regime, including the longtime international face of the regime, Tariq Aziz

The announcement comes a day before American authorities leave Camp Cropper, which is the last American-run detention facility in Iraq.

Iraq's deputy justice minister has told The Associated Press that the handover has taken place over the last three days. U.S. authorities confirmed today that they had handed over some detainees but would not give any identities.
