    Saddam during his trial
    Saddam Hussein Executed

    Updated: 03:08, Saturday December 30, 2006

    Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has been hanged for war crimes, it has been reported.
    His death sentence was carried out in Baghdad following hours of confusion over whether he was to be executed or not.
    US troops in Iraq had been put on "high alert" in case the announcement of his death sparked an outbreak of violence.
    Saddam was sentenced to death by an Iraqi court on November 5 after a trial lasting more than a year.
    He was found guilty of ordering the murder of 148 people in the village of Dujail following a failed assassination attempt against him in 1982.
    The Iraqi government had made it clear it wanted the sentence carried out as quickly as possible, even though Saddam faced a series of other charges.
    Saddam had been captured in December 2003, nine months after a US-led coalition invaded Iraq.
    Officials in Iraq hinted last night that Saddam's execution was imminent.
    However, the US Pentagon played down the claims and said it did not expect the former dictator to be hanged "within the next 24 hours".
    Meanwhile, lawyers for Saddam made a last-ditch legal bid in Washington DC to prevent him being handed over to Iraqi authorities for execution. However, the judge turned down the request.

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - U.S.-backed Iraqi television station Al Hurra said Saddam Hussein had been executed by hanging shortly before 6 a.m. (0300 GMT) on Saturday.

    The former Iraqi president ousted in April 2003 by a U.S.- led invasion was convicted in November of crimes against humanity over the killings of 148 Shi'ite villagers from Dujail after a failed assassination bid in 1982.

    An appeals court upheld the death penalty on Tuesday. Iraq's government has kept details of its plans to conduct the execution completely secret amid concerns it could spark a violent backlash from his former supporters.

    Maybe we should have asked Saddam what his last meal was?

    I honestly think a lot of Iraqs did not want to help the US forces because there was still a chance he could get out of jail. He ruled with such an iron hand that even the smallest of chance of his return to power scared them.
    I hope this is the case. I hope things will start to settle down some in the next few weeks.
