US troops protect former minister after jail sentence:

Baghdad: US troops took a former Iraqi minister who holds US citizenship from a Baghdad court yesterday after he was sentenced to two years in jail for misusing public money, Iraqi officials said.

The troops whisked Ayham Al Samarraie, a Sunni Arab who served in the first post-war interim government of Prime Minister Eyad Allawi, from the courtroom in the central criminal court building after he expressed fears for his life, the officials said.
