Iraq's fugitive vice president leaves Qatar after 4-day official visit to Gulf country
DOHA, Qatar (AP) ' State media in Qatar say that Iraq's fugitive vice president has left the Gulf country after a four-day official visit.
The Qatar News Agency says Tariq al-Hashemi, who is the top Sunni official in Iraq's Shiite-dominated government, left the country on Wednesday. The report does not say where al-Hashemi is headed or if he plans to return to Iraq.
Iraq has issued a warrant for al-Hashemi's arrest on terror charges and called on Qatar to extradite the suspect to stand trial in Baghdad. Qatar refused the request.
