President Saddam Hussein's eldest son Uday appealed on Thursday to his Saddam Fidayeen paramilitary volunteer force to be prepared to die as "martyrs" against US-led invaders.



"This is the day that we wanted Iraq's (women) to ululate for us either as victorious heroes or as faithful martyrs," Uday was quoted as saying by the state news agency INA.

The "martyrs will fulfil their pledge to God, happy to be the first to become martyrs in the defence of our great Iraq," he said.
