Saddam Hussein's Chrome AK-47 Being Returned to Iraq





Federal customs agents say a pearl-handled AK-47 that belonged to Saddam Hussein is being sent back to Iraq.

The weapon had been in the hands of the U.S. Army. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says the automatic rifle is chrome-plated and has a photo of Hussein near the sight.

ICE agent Peter J. Smith calls the AK-47 "a priceless symbol of Iraqi history."
