Tariq Aziz - Top Iraqi official in custody

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Tariq Aziz, the deputy prime minister in the regime of deposed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, is in U.S. custody, CNN has confirmed.

Aziz, who was often the public face of the regime on the international stage, was No. 43 on the list of the 55 most-wanted Iraqis and was the "eight of spades" in the deck of cards being circulated by coalition troops.

It was not immediately clear how Aziz was taken into custody.

On the eve of war, Aziz denounced reports that he had either been shot or had asked for political asylum. Earlier, Aziz said he would never go into exile and "would prefer to die" rather than "go to Guantanamo" as a U.S. prisoner of war.

Other developments
Lt. Gen. David McKiernan, commander of ground forces in Iraq, plans to issue a proclamation reminding Iraqi politicians that coalition forces are the sole authority in the country until a new government is put in place, U.S. military sources told CNN. The proclamation is part of an effort to ensure Iraqi politicians don't attempt to fill a power vacuum left by the ouster of Saddam Hussein's regime. (Full story)

U.S. Marines from the 4th Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, attached to Task Force Tarawa, are patrolling the Iraqi-Iranian border along the length of the Wasit Province east of Kut. The patrols are designed to keep Iranian-backed dissidents from coming into Iraq. The Marines are under orders to search and interview all people attempting to enter or leave Iraq through Iran. The Marines hope to locate and detain "all former regime officials, third-country nationals and insurgents," according to a U.S. Central Command statement.
