What happened to Saddam's third son?

Saddam Hussain had three sons. Where is the third kid? I heard that he is only in his late teens or early twenties, where is he? he is not reported in the media, except to say that daddy Saddam had three boys and two girls. I would suppose the youngest son is a half brother of the other two?

Also, does saddam speak English at all?

From what I've heard, Son #3 didn't have anything to do with running the country. They might have just let him get away.

Yes.

The troops who came across Saddam Hussein on Saturday were offered "negotiations", spokesman Major Brian Reed said on Monday.

"I am Saddam Hussein, I am the president of Iraq and I want to negotiate," the former leader was quoted as saying in English from his pit.

The soldiers, according to Major Reed, replied with the words "President Bush sends his regards".
