 Obituary: Ali Hassan al-Majid | Iraq | Guardian Unlimited
Born near Tikrit, Saddam's hometown to the north of Baghdad, Majid was the son of the Iraqi leader's paternal uncle, a peasant from a subordinate clan of the al-Bu Nasir tribe.
Majid rooted out real and imagined enemies with terrifying zeal, and it was these qualities that led Saddam to entrust him with the crushing of resistance in the Kurdish areas of the north in the latter stages of the war.
Thereafter, Majid was back in the centre, and, in 1997, he was appointed as overseer and coordinator of the intelligence services and of the Ba'ath party apparatus in central and southern Iraq.
