Pictures of Saddam Hussein in his underpants could spell trouble for News Corporation - Telegraph

News Corporation, the parent company of News International, could face an investigation in the US over its payment to a US soldier for pictures of Saddam Hussein in his underpants.

In 2005 The Sun published a series of photographs of the deposed dictator in prison in Iraq, under the front page headline "The Tyrant's In His Pants".

The newspaper made no secret of the fact that it had paid a US military source for the photographs, but the US website The Daily Beast has now reported that the money was handed over on American soil, meaning an offence could have been committed in the US.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
