BAGHDAD – Iraq has decided to sell Saddam Hussein's luxury yacht after winning a legal dispute over its ownership.
The former dictator's 269-foot superyacht is fitted with swimming pools, salons, a secret passage and a rocket launching system.

French authorities seized the boat on Jan. 31 after it docked in Nice on the Mediterranean coast. The yacht remained there while courts settled a row over the ship's ownership.
A yacht brokerage firm had tried to sell the boat for a reported $35 million. But Iraq said the yacht still belonged the country.
