    Saddam's left leg seized

    German customs officers have seized Saddam Hussein's left leg.

    The bronze leg from the statue of Saddam was all that remained when US troops toppled the rest of it to the ground live on TV.

    It was later seized as a war trophy by British soldiers who smuggled it into Germany where it was sold to a scrap metal dealer and then snapped up by an art collector who put it on the internet.

    The leg was then sold for 6,000 to a German man who wanted it as a birthday present for his father - but before the leg could be handed over it was seized by customs officers.

    seized up

    But did it relax and let go?
    This is my opinion, and change is good.

    Crap, I was hoping it was his real leg. Figured maybe the Germans were going to try and clone him so they could get some more money.

    Kinda makes you do a double take.

    jeana, how can you let your daughter do cartwheels? She might stub her toe or hurt her finger AND be ruined for life!
