IRAQIS turning on their televisions this weekend during the Muslim holiday of Eid have been surprised to be greeted by the face of Saddam Hussein.
The late Iraqi dictator is being lauded on a mysterious satellite channel that began broadcasting on the Islamic calendar’s anniversary of his 2006 execution.
It is not known who is bankrolling the so-called “Saddam Channel”, although the Iraqi government suspects it is Baathists, whose political party Saddam once led. A man in Damascus, Syria, named Mohammed Jarboua, has claimed to be its chairman.
