BAGHDAD, July 27 (UPI) -- Cologne, Viagra and a single condom were among items found near the bodies Uday and Qusay Hussein.

After Tuesday's firefight, American soldiers found Uday's briefcase near his body, Newsweek reports in this week's edition.

Its contents included several bottles of cologne, the aforementioned Viagra, painkillers, unopened packages of men's underwear and that condom. Newsweek said Uday also had several dress shirts and one silk tie.

The brothers had "a huge stash of cash" between them and for some reason, Newsweek said, two ladies handbags.

Of the two brothers, Newsweek said, Uday was the more "grotesque." He supposedly raped the girlfriends of other prominent Iraqis, then branded them with the letter "U." He was also known for torturing athletes if he felt they were not playing up to potential.

Qusay, chief of security forces, had a fondness for watching political prisoners being fed through a wood chipper.
