Koran geschrieben mit Saddam Hussein Blut

Saddam Hussein hatte tatsächlich einen Koran, der mit seinem eigenen Blut handgeschrieben wurde.

It was etched in the blood of a dictator in a ghoulish bid for piety. Over the course of two painstaking years in the late 1990s, Saddam Hussein had sat regularly with a nurse and an Islamic calligrapher; the former drawing 27 litres of his blood and the latter using it as a macabre ink to transcribe a Qur'an.
