About Abd al-Naif

Abd al-Naif

ABD ar-RAZZAQ SAID al-NAIF d1978. Iraqi military officer and general who was briefly Prime Minister of Iraq during 1968 until he was deposed. He was assassinated while visiting Britain on July 9th 1978 (by orders of Saddam Hussein) because of his opposition to the Iraqi Ba’ath Government. He was critically injured as he left the Intercontinental Hotel in London's Park Lane and died the following day aged 44. His killer, Salem Ahmed Hassan was quickly captured and was later convicted of the shooting at the Old Bailey and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1979. His body was transported to Jordan where he was buried at the orders of Jordan's King Hussein. As the evidence showed Iraqi Government involvement in Al-Naif's assassination, Britain cut off diplomatic relations with Iraq and ordered all Iraqi diplomats out of Britain
