December 15, 2003|By NEWSDAY

There's no clear word yet on who, if anyone, will get the $25 million bounty promised for information leading to Saddam Hussein's capture. But U.S. officials indicated that someone close to the deposed dictator's family might be in the money.

Maj. Gen. Raymond Odierno, the commander of the 4th Infantry Division, which captured Hussein, said that during the past week and a half, U.S. soldiers questioned "five to 10 members" of families "close to Saddam."

He added, "Finally we got the ultimate information from one of these individuals."
