Ex-Saddam aide Tariq Aziz gets 15 years in jail  
 

One of the most high profile figures in Saddam Hussein's government, Tariq Aziz, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

The sentence handed down to Aziz, once Saddam's right-hand man, was for his part in the execution of dozens of traders, accused of breaking state price controls.

Two half brothers of Saddam were also sentenced to death, as Omar Al Saleh reports.
