This came after on December 13, 2003 he was found hiding in a small underground bunker near a farmhouse in ad-Dawr on December 13 2003.

From there, he was moved to a U.S. base in Baghdad, where he would remain until June 30, 2004, when he was officially handed over to the interim Iraqi government to stand trial for crimes against humanity.

Who betrayed him?
