Iraq's U.N. Ambassador Mohammed Al-Douri said Tuesday the Iraqi government is still in control of the country and he believes that President Saddam Hussein is alive although Al-Douri said he has no communication with Baghdad.

"I think that the president is in Baghdad and all the people are there fighting, and it's OK," Al-Douri told Associated Press Television News.

Despite the U.S. bombing Monday of a restaurant where Saddam and his sons were believed to be meeting, the ambassador said he thinks Saddam is still alive.

"The U.S. targeted him as usual," Al-Douri said. "They tried to get him, but I think he knows very well that he is targeted by Americans."

"This is a war ... a war of aggression. The Americans are there to aggress our people, and our country. So we will see the results, (but) not yet," he said.
