Saddam HusseinNOV 17: The left leg of the statue of Saddam Hussein pulled down by US troops in Baghdad is up for sale on the internet.

It's up for auction on German internet site Azubo.de after two English contractors reportedly smuggled it out of Iraq.

The site says two Englishmen working as private contractors smuggled the 300 kilo left leg out of Iraq to Bremen in Germany as a joke.

They sold it to a scrap dealer who left it in his yard for half a year and had been planning to sell it as an artwork without realizing what it was.

It was spotted later by the current owner who confirmed what the leg was from the TV footage and snapped it up so he could sell it on the Internet.

He said he paid a four figure price for the leg, that had been sold to the scrap dealer as a curiosity.

 
Serbian chefs go for testicles
NOV 17: Specialist cooks from around the world gathered in Serbia for the World Testicle Cooking Championship.

Testicles are regarded as a gourmet delicacy in Serbia and the country is hoping to develop an export market.

The championship was organized by Ljubomir Erovic, of the Serbian Tourism Board, as a way of promoting the dish.

He said: "The best cooked balls come from Serbia and we wanted to stage this contest to show the world what great dishes can be cooked using testicles, which are known locally here as white kidneys."

Serbian daily newspaper Glas Javnosti said the contest in the village of Savinac, close to town of Gornji Milanovac, was won by gourmet testicle chef Dejan Milovanovic from Belgrade.

His specialist dish prepared using testicles from a bull and a boar beat off challengers from around the world, who cooked their way through more than 20 kilos of prepared testicles.

Milovanovic added: "Testicles are becoming more popular in Belgrade and we hope that more restaurants will offer this local specialty now that they see what tasty dishes can be created."

Next year the event will include an 'exotic testicles' section where chefs will have to come up with a dish using camel and ostrich testicles.

Organizer Erovic said: "All testicles can be eaten, except human of course - we don't want any cannibals here."

 
Palestinians head to Paris to probe Arafat's death
ArafatNOV 17: Palestinian leaders plan to send a delegation to Paris to seek details on what caused the death of President Yasser Arafat last week at a French hospital.

The decision follows France's refusal to release Arafat's medical dossier to the Palestinian Authority.

French government has insisted that Arafat had not been poisoned.

But uncertainty surrounded the cause of Arafat's death because French law prevents doctors releasing details without permission from his wife Souha, who has maintained a veil of secrecy.

"The conditions surrounding the death of President Yasser Arafat raises questions," Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qurie's office said in a statement.

France's Le Monde newspaper quoted doctors on Wednesday as saying Arafat, 75, a longtime symbol of Palestinian nationalism, suffered from an unusual blood disease and a liver problem.

The French satirical weekly Le Canard Enchaine said the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat suffered from cirrhosis of the liver, but his death was not caused by alcohol.

Citing doctors who "had access" to Arafat and his file, the paper said that from Arafat's admission to a French military hospital near Paris, the medical team "suspected serious hepatic lesions" that could affect the content of his blood.

Leukaemia was quickly ruled out. "The most likely scenario is that there were multiple causes of death. His coma was probably caused by the aggravation of his liver condition. And to finish off, there was the haemorrhaging."
