Saddam Hussein Was Executed Tonight By Hanging

Saddam Hussein Was Executed Tonight By Hanging

The Times of London announced tonight that:

“Saddam Hussein was hanged shortly before dawn today after the Iraqi Government rushed through the formalities of his final hours.  With unexpected speed, the Iraqi Prime Minister swept aside any remaining political hurdles and signed the former dictator’s death sentence.  Iraqi and US officials met for almost three hours late last night to confirm that all legal requirements for the execution had been met.

The official witnesses to the execution gathered at the green zone in Baghdad in the early hours as final preparations were made.  A gallows had been erected in a parade ground still dominated by a triumphal arch formed of crossed swords held in hands modeled on Saddam’s own.  Judge Moneer Haddad, who was one of the official witnesses, told The Times that he read the death warrant to Saddam before asking him for his last wish and request.  Another witness, a Muslim cleric, then asked Saddam to deliver his final words.”
