Prince Abdullah is said to have discussed the plan: Riyadh urges amnesty for Baghdad government to avert war

Saudi Arabia is seeking support for a diplomatic plan to avert war in Iraq by persuading Saddam Husseinís own generals to topple him in a coup, Time magazine reported Thursday.

Arab leaders are planning a coup to topple Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, says a report in Time magazine.
Saudi Arabia is reported to be behind the plot which proposes encouraging Iraqi generals to overthrow Saddam and his inner circle. The aim is to avoid a United States-led war with Iraq which could spark other wars in the region. If there is amnesty for the rest of the government, Saddam will be checkmated. The Saudi idea requires a United Nations resolution declaring an amnesty for the Iraqi officials if they got rid of Saddam, Western and diplomatic sources are quoted as saying.
