(AFX-Focus) 2003-04-04 19:00 GMT: IRAQ WAR TV shows Saddam cheered on streets of Baghdad

BAGHDAD (AFX) - Iraqi television has showed President Saddam Hussein being cheered on a street, in the first footage of the Iraqi leader in public aired since the start of the war.

Saddam appeared in olive green military garb on the main square of the al-Mansour residential neighborhood of Baghdad, flanked by just a few bodyguards but packing a firearm in a holster.

The footage, which showed a scene in daylight, was broadcast at about 9:20 pm (1730 GMT).

Smiling broadly, the Iraqi strongman accepted several kisses of his hand from the jubilant crowd, which chanted "With our blood and our souls, we shall redeem you" and "Bush, Bush, listen well, we all love Saddam Hussein."
