Saddam's Wife Says US Prisoner
Isn't Her Husband
17th April, 2004
Last week, American authorities arranged a meeting of the former
Iraqi dictator with his wife. She was the first of Hussein-s relatives
to meet with the ex-leader of Iraq at a new place, at the American
military base in Qatar. Accompanied by Sheikh Hamad Al-Tani,
Sajida Heiralla Tuffah has arrived from Syria on his private jet
in the end of March.
The outcome of their meeting turned out to be quite scandalous.
Sajina claims that the person she encountered was not her husband,
but his double.
Rumors follow capture:
