  Saddam's daughters allowed to stay in Jordan
Updated 01 August 2003, 12.03

Two of Saddam Hussein's daughters are being allowed to go to Jordan to be protected.

Raghad and Rana Saddam Hussein have arrived in the country's capital, Amman, with their nine children.

Jordan's leader, King Abdullah, has said he's agreed to let them stay for "humanitarian reasons", which means he's worried about their safety.

But the two women will be kept heavily guarded.

Reward

Saddam Hussein is still in hiding
They're believed to have travelled to Jordan from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, where they've been staying for some time since the Iraq war.

Saddam Hussein, the former Iraqi leader, is still being hunted by the US military.

His daughters arrived in Jordan just as the US government agreed a 19 million reward for the person who led them to Saddam's sons, Uday and Qusay.

The sons were killed in a shoot-out by US soldiers last week.
