Iraq issues arrest warrant for TBI head

Iraqi authorities have issued an arrest warrant for Hussein al-Uzri, president and chairman of the state-owned Trade Bank of Iraq (TBI), which is under investigation for alleged irregularities, Reuters has reported. Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki ordered a judicial inquiry into TBI, after a committee including officials from Iraq's anti-corruption commission and audit authority reported 'violations' at the institution.
