(Amman, Jordan-AP) -- Jordan's king compares the speculation about Saddam Hussein to another kind of king.

King Abdullah says there have been so many reports of Saddam being seen in various places that "it's like Elvis" -- with a lot of sightings.

Abdullah tells A-B-C there have been reports of Saddam moving around northwestern Iraq, using taxis and pickup trucks.

He says that out of Saddam and his two sons, popular consensus is that at least two are still alive -- but he's not saying which two.

And he says many Iraqis are probably afraid Saddam might still be alive -- and come back to haunt them.
