The Red Cross has not been able to visit with Saddam Hussein since his capture on December 13, 2003 but they are confident that the USA will allow
them to visit him "sooner than later".
She said the visit to Saddam should happen fairly "automatically" because the ICRC, which is entitled to see POWs under the Geneva Conventions on
the conduct of war, has so far had access to all coalition locations for holding POWs and civilian internees.
The agency still doesn't know where Saddam is being held and will know for sure only when its delegates have seen him, Doumani said.
"The Americans are saying that he's somewhere in Iraq, as far as I understand, but we cannot confirm that or deny it," Doumani said.
