Mohammed Hamza al-Zubeidi (born 1938 - died December 2, 2005) was the Prime Minister of Iraq from 1991 to 1993. He is on the "Saddam's Dirty Dozen" list of people responsible for torture and murder in Iraq, playing a key role in Iraq's brutal suppression of the Shiite Muslim uprising of 1991. He was featured in Iraqi news film kicking and beating captured Shiite rebels.
Although a Shiite himself, al-Zubeidi played a key part in the suppression of the Shiite uprising in March 1991. After that, he was the country's prime minister until the post went to Saddam Hussein in 1993.
He was a member of the Revolutionary Command Council and the commander of the Central Euphrates military district, but had not been in power for two years.
He was the Queen of Spades in the deck of most-wanted Iraqi playing cards issued by the US government during the war in Iraq. After the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime, he was captured on April 20, 2003 near the small city of Mahaweel.
He remained in American custody until his death of natural causes in a military hospital on December 2, 2005. On that day, an American spokesman revealed that someone had died in a military hospital but did not reveal his name. Two days later, Saddam Hussein's half-brother Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti announced Zubedi's death at his trial, complaining that they were both suffering from cancer and that he did not want to end up dead like Zubedi because of what he claimed was poor medical treatment.
