CAIRO - Unidentified attackers on Thursday killed Ali al-Lami, an Iraqi politician heading a committee set up to purge Saddam Hussein loyalists after the US-led invasion in 2003, Arab satellite stations said.

The Qatar-based Al Jazeera and Dubai-based Al-Arabiya channels said Lami had been "assassinated" in Iraq but gave no further details.
