Iraq slams Jordan for allowing Saddam's relatives to fund insurgency

The Iraqi government criticized Jordan on Sunday for allowing Saddam Hussein's family to fund a network to destabilize Iraq.

"It is regrettable to say that until now there are big numbers of elements, not only former regime elements, but supervisors of some terrorist groups who are now in Jordan," government spokesman Laith Kubba told reporters.

Kubba accused Saddam's relatives in Jordan of using "huge amounts of money" to "support the efforts to revive Baath Party organizations", without specifying the names of the relatives.

Saddam's two oldest daughters are now living in Amman, the capital of Jordan.
