    Saddam capture rumour spreads
    By staff writers
    July 30, 2003

    THE Pentagon said today it could not confirm or deny rumours that Saddam Hussein had already been captured by US forces.

    Whispers of the Iraqi leader's capture swept US markets just after 11am local time (2am AEST) causing an afternoon spike in stocks.

    But the Pentagon said although US forces were closing in on Saddam, it had no news of his capture.

    Responding to further inquiries, acting Pentagon spokesman Larry Di Rita said US authorities were not being evasive about the rumours
