Deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein ended his hunger strike a week ago after foregoing food for 11 days, his lead lawyer Khalil al-Dulaimi told the agency on Monday.

"I met with my client for seven hours on Sunday. At our request he had earlier ended the hunger strike he had been on for 11 days and he has lost four to five kilos," Dulaimi said.
