The body of Tariq Aziz, Saddam Hussein’s former top aide who died in prison on Iraq last week, has gone missing, his daughter has claimed.

Zeinab Aziz said she was told by her mother, who is in Iraq, that her father’s body was snatched at Baghdad International Airport while en route to Jordan for burial.

No further details were available.

A Royal Jordanian official confirmed the last flight left Baghdad without Aziz’s casket.

Aziz died last Friday in the city of Nasiriyah, where he was imprisoned awaiting execution.

Iraqi forensics chief Zaid Ali Abbas said results of a post-mortem examination confirmed he died of a heart attack.
