Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was shown on state TV meeting with senior political and military officials.

Military Industrialization Minister Abdul Tawab al-Mulla Howeish, the head of Iraq's atomic energy agency Fadhel al-Janabi and Mozahem Saab al-Hassan, head of Iraqi anti-aircraft defences, attended the meeting.

Higher Education Minister Humam Abdul Khaleq, the interim foreign minister, was also on hand.

Saddam has reportedly chaired three meetings with senior officials since US and British forces launched an offensive on Thursday aimed at overthrowing his regime.
