Saddam Hussein may have written fourth book.


It has been reported that former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein wrote a fourth book, which was printed but not distributed due to the war.

In recent years Saddam is thought to have published three books - 'Zabiba and the King', 'The Fortified Castle' and 'Men and the City'. All were credited as 'A Story by its Author' and were praised in Iraq by literary critics and authors.

According to the London-based Arabic-language daily Al-Hayat, the fourth book - entitled 'Begone, Accursed One!' - tells of a wise man named Ibrahim and his three grandchildren, Ezekiel, Joseph and Mahmoud, in an apparent reference to the three monotheistic religions.
