heavy bombing raids in Iraq.
U.S. and U.K. forces had questioned video footage of Saddam shown on Iraqi
television but this morning, Saddam appeared on television and said: "To
prove I am still alive, Liverpool were total shite on Saturday."
Despite his comments, the British Government remained unconvined.
"That could have been recorded months ago," said a Downing Street spokeman.
