Baghdad, Riyadh to repatriate prisoners

By: Raza Ali

NEW YORK: Iraq has agreed to repatriate Saudi prisoners who fought alongside insurgents against U.S.-led invasion.

The prisoner exchange deal comes less than a month after Saudi Arabia named an ambassador to Baghdad for the first time since Saddam invaded Kuwait in 1990.It also comes ahead of an Arab summit in Baghdad on March 29 which has been delayed twice by regional turmoil and acrimony between Baghdad and some Gulf Arab states over a crackdown by Bahrain’s rulers on Shi’ite protesters.”

According to rights activists hundreds of Saudis held in Iraq, mostly for involvement in an insurgency against U.S.-led troops, as well as Iraqis held in Saudi Arabia for criminal offences, are expected to be affected.
