Iraq sculpture destroyed by fire
A sculpture put together out of oil drums, cardboard boxes, cable wheels and adhesive tape has been burned down just two months after its completion. The £2,000 Sajida Talfah - named after former Iraq leader Saddam Hussein's first wife - was unveiled in February in Holland Park, west London. Artist Graham Hudson said it was meant to symbolise the war in Iraq. A spokesman for Mr Hudson's gallery said the sculpture had been completely destroyed.
