ALjazeera airs Saddam tape

Aljazeera broadcast an audiotaped address purportedly from deposed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein on Friday, the Muslim holy day.

    Arb stations have received several tapes purporting to be the voice of Saddam.

    In the audiotape, the speaker claiming to be Saddam called on

    Iraqis to safeguard the properties of the state and his ousted Baath

    Party until "things return to normal" and spoke of the need to

    "salvage" even those who "betrayed the nation" by collaborating with

    the US occupiers.

    The speaker, who also called for resistance to the US

    occupation, gave July 27 as the date of the recording.
