LAWYER REPORTS SADDAM IS HEALTHY, IN HIGH SPIRITS

Saddam Hussein is in good health and high spirits, the chief of his legal team reported Wednesday after a defense lawyer met with the deposed Iraqi dictator.

Ziad al-Khasawneh, who leads Saddam's defense team, said Saddam met with lawyer Khalil al-Duleimi for six hours at the U.S.-guarded detention facility near Baghdad's international airport where he has been held since he was captured in December 2003 in Tikrit.

Saddam, who is 68 today, will be tried before the Iraqi Special Tribunal. No date has been set.
