`Saddam`s daughter wants to publish his memoirs`

Saddam Hussein had planned to escape from his US-run prison with the help of loyalists, including former bodyguards.

Amman: Raghad, a daughter of executed Iraqi
president Saddam Hussein, plans to publish her father`s
memoirs, her Jordanian lawyer said on Sunday.

"Raghad is looking for an international publishing company
to publish her father`s memoirs, which he himself wrote,"
Haitham Herish told Al-Ghad newspaper.

"These are the real and authentic memoirs, and Raghad is
open to any offer that would preserve the rights of her
family."

Raghad, the eldest of Saddam`s three daughters, fled with
her sister Rana and children to Jordan in 2003.

In 2009, Saddam`s former attorney Khalil al-Dulaimi
published what he said was the memories of the Iraqi leader
who was toppled in the US-led invasion of 2003, based on their
conversations.

In the 480-page book, "Saddam Hussein Out of US Prison:
What Happened?" Dulaimi wrote that Saddam had planned to
escape from his US-run prison with the help of loyalists,
including former bodyguards.

Saddam was captured by US troops in December 2003, eight
months after the fall of Baghdad, in a pit on a farm near his
hometown of Tikrit in northern Iraq.

He was hanged in December 2006 after being convicted of
crimes against humanity.
