(Amman: Peter Jennings) Interview of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein continued in which he is questioned about holding of American hostages and about Americans in hiding in occupied Kuwait. [HUSSEIN - (thru translator) says it is a difficult situation that is justified because it may detract from possibility of war; talks further about eventual freedom for these people when war no longer looms large; calls for open pledge from President Bush not to use weapons against Iraq.] Two Americans, United States consul in Kuwait William Colwell and Dr. William Brown, reported released as favor to former attorney general Ramsey Clark. Plans for planeload of women and children to leave Kuwait while their husbands remain hostages noted. Further coverage of Hussein's interview on "PrimeTime Live" previewed.
