Interpol issues orange security alert following Saddam Hussein’s nephew’s escape from prison

Lyon, France - Police in 186-member countries received a special Interpol notice Sunday warning of the potential threat after the reported escape by a nephew of Saddam Hussein from a prison near Mosul, Iraq.

Interpol considers the escape of Ayman Sabawi, who was serving prison sentences for possession of illegal weapons and for the manufacture of explosive devices used in terrorist attacks, a threat to all Interpol member countries and has issued an Interpol Orange Notice to alert its national central bureaus and member country police services around the world about the potential risk to their citizen’s safety posed by his escape.
