Saddam's yacht still in limbo

A French court has refused to lift a ban on the sale of a super-yacht built for former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, reported AFP. The 82-metre yacht, which has been impounded on the Riviera as a dispute rages over its ownership, was never actually delivered to Iraq. The Cayman island-based firm Sudeley Limited, part-owned by King Abdullah of Jordan, says it is now the legal owner of the luxury boat, which is equipped with swimming pools, a mosque, a missile-launcher and mini-submarine.
