An Iraqi court has issued arrest warrants for the country's ambassador to Jordan and a senior Finance Ministry official. Judge Arif Shahin said Monday that the ambassador had been charged with refusing to carry out an arrest warrant for an Iraqi man accused of assassinating a leading Iraqi Baath Party official in Lebanon. The ambassador, Saad al-Hiyyani, denies the charge. The judge said the ministry official had been charged with wasting public money. The official, Abdul-Basit Turki, is director general of the Finance Ministry's auditing department.
