‘Comical Ali’ rediscovered

The Iraqi information minister, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, justly famous thanks to his numerous and somewhat comical protestations at press conferences, has resurfaced in Baghdad.

An Iraqi Kurdish official told a London-based Arabic newspaper that Mr Sahhaf was staying at his aunt&#39s house in Baghdad, and was under surveillance by US forces. Captured then released by the Americans (although they deny this), &#39Ali&#39 is now working on a book.
