CNN BREAKING NEWS

"Seven of Hearts" Captured; Four U.S. Soldiers Accused of Stealing Cash Found in Baghdad

Aired April 23, 2003 - 17:14   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: I want to turn right away to the Pentagon. We're following a breaking story out of Pentagon. Let's turn to senior Pentagon correspondent Jamie McIntyre -- Jamie.
JAMIE MCINTYRE, CNN SENIOR PENTAGON CORRESPONDENT: Well another one of the 55 most wanted Iraqis is now in U.S. custody. Pentagon officials tell us that Zuhayr Al Naqib, the seven of hearts in the infamous deck of the most wanted, has turned himself over to U.S. officials.

He is the director of military intelligence. In that role he was a career army officer of the regular army, not the special Republican Guard. And as the head of intelligence he would have been in charge of keeping an eye on the loyalty of Saddam Hussein's troops.

Also today another development. We have confirmed that four U.S. Army soldiers are under investigation for allegedly trying to stash away several hundred thousand dollars from the money recovered by U.S. troops in Baghdad. They were turned in by some of the junior leadership in their units. These four soldiers from two different units in the 3rd Infantry Division are under criminal investigation. They face possible court-martials for trying to apparently steal some of the money that the U.S. had recovered in Baghdad -- Wolf.

BLITZER: All right, Jamie McIntyre at the Pentagon, with breaking news. Thanks, Jamie, very much.
