Iraq captures alleged Islamic State finance chief

Sami Jasim al-Jaburi, a veteran of IS’s rise and fall, was seized days before Iraqi parliamentary elections due on Sunday. The prime minister, Mustafa al-Kadhimi, who announced the capture, is likely to be a contender for what would be his second term as leader in horse-trading for government positions expected in the months ahead.

Iraqi officials did not disclose where Juburi was caught or who else played a role in the operation.
