Baghdad mayor

As Sayliya Camp (Qatar), April 27 (Reuters): US forces in Iraq detained self-proclaimed Baghdad mayor Mohammed Mohsen Zubaidi today for exercising authority he did not have, US Central Command said.

“Zubaidi was detained and them removed from Baghdad to prevent his continued misrepresentation of his authority as the mayor of Baghdad in the aftermath of the regime’s defeat,” it said in a statement, adding seven other members of his organisation had also been detained. Five were subsequently released and the rest were being held at an internment facility in Iraq.
