Ownership of Yacht Disputed

The ownership of the 269-foot Ocean Breeze, built for Saddam Hussein and docked on the French Riviera, which is up for sale is currently under dispute.

Iraq claims that it belongs to a member of Saddam's entourage, as such it is now the property of the government of Iraq.

A court hearing will be held in March to determine ownership.

The Ocean Breeze was made for a 35-member crew and has 10 rooms, several salons with large-screen TVs, pools, saunas, gold plumbing fixtures, a prayer room and a portable helicopter pad.

It also has special fittings eg; bulletproof windows, a missile-launching system and a secret passage leading to a mini-submarine.

Are you sure it doesn't belong to Ernest Blofeld ?
