No Buyers For Saddam's Yacht

By Staff

Reportedly Saddam Hussein's 21 million yacht has been returned to the shores of Iraq, as it found no takers. The yacht was designed for the former dictator in the year 1981.

However, Saddam never used it, the luxury property was constructed with swimming pools, a mosque and a missile launcher, but there have been no takers and it is being returned to Iraq.

The yacht will depart from Greece where it has been since last July, for saving maintenance fee. A Government spokesman confirmed: "We have authorised the transportation ministry to bring the presidential yacht to Basra province's port."

The vessel was build for Saddam 28 years ago, it was moved to Saudi Arabia during the Iraq-Iran war, thus the dictator never used it ever. AGENCIES
