"BERLIN (Reuters) - A German television network said on Thursday it had made a scientific study of 450 photographs of Saddam Hussein ( news - web sites) in Iraq and concluded there are at least three doubles posing as the Iraqi president.
The ZDF public television network, working with a German coroner, said it took the photographs and film clips of Saddam which it had in its archives and used facial recognition technology to determine that men said to be him were lookalikes.
"In the film sequences since 1998 only the doubles appear," said Dieter Buhmann, a Homburg coroner. "He himself has not been seen again." "
