Iraqi television on Saturday showed footage of President Saddam Hussein chairing a meeting of top political and military advisers, including his two sons Uday and Qussay.

The broadcast followed a televised address Friday by Saddam and rare images of the security-obsessed Iraqi leader touring his capital, which has been battered by two weeks of US-led air strikes.

Saddam was seen in Friday's broadcast being mobbed by well-wishers, who kissed his hand and chanted for his victory over the US-led coalition.
