Report: Saddam son suffers from brain hemorrhage

Uday, the elder son of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, struck by brain hemorrhage following conflict with a member of Saddam's Fedayeen on Thursday.  


The Iranian news agency, IRNA, quoted sources in northern Iraq as saying that tough and indecent orders, issued by Uday, who heads Saddam's Fedayeen, had provoked the conflict as the young man attacked Uday.  


Uday's bodyguards then beat the man to injury, the unconfirmed report said.  


According to some observers, the recent report on Uday could be part of the American and the Iraqi opposition propaganda campaign against Saddam Hussein's regime.  


In recent weeks, the United States has been stepping up its special radio broadcasts and leaflet drops in Iraq.  


For the past four months, the U.S. military has been beaming messages to Iraq on AM, FM and shortwave signals. The messages were prepared by a psychological operations unit based in Fort Bragg, N.C. (
