Baghdad, August 3 (AP): Deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein sent a letter to his grandson in Jordan telling him to be strong and care for his family, according to al Arabiya television.

The letter, delivered by the Red Cross, was addressed to Ali Hussein al-Majeed and was the second received by his family since the strongman was detained last year.

“He asked me to take care of my family and to keep the family’s reputation,” al-Majeed told al-Arabiya. “He recommends that I be a man, like my father and uncle, a man who can be trusted.”
