Baghdad, Iraq-AP -- Iraq's U-S-appointed government has raided the Baghdad office of an Arabic T-V news channel for broadcasting an audiotape purported to carry the voice of Saddam Hussein.

The president of the Iraqi Governing Council says it plans to sue the Al-Arabiya (ahl-ah-rih-BEE'-yah) T-V network. Jalal Talabani says "in our view Saddam is a criminal, a war criminal and an executioner."

Talabani adds Al-Arabiya is inciting murder because it's calling for killings through the voice of Saddam Hussein. He says Al-Arabiya will be banned from working in Iraq for "a certain time," which he didn't specify.

About 20 Iraqi police raided the office of the Dubai-based, Saudi-owned company today, listing equipment to be seized if the network doesn't comply with the orders of Iraqi authorities.
