U.S. offers $25 million reward for Saddam

The United States is offering a $25 million reward for information that either leads to the capture of Saddam Hussein or confirms that the former Iraqi leader is dead, U.S. officials announced Thursday.

In addition, they offered a $15 million reward for similar information about Saddam's sons Uday and Qusay.

The reward is being offered through the State Department's Reward for Justice Program, which seeks to prevent acts of terrorism against the U.S., and pays rewards for information leading to the arrests and/or convictions of terrorists attempting or committing acts against U.S. interests.
