Saddam Hussein hanged, says Al Hurra TV station

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. […]

This has been confirmed to BBC News by the Iraqi Deputy Foreign Minister, Labeed Abawi.

[…] Two co-defendants, Saddam Hussein’s half-brother Barzan al-Tikriti and former Iraqi chief judge Awad Hamed al-Bandar, were also executed.

All three were sentenced to death by an Iraqi court on 5 November after a year-long trial over the 1982 killings of 148 Shias in the town of Dujail. […]

I pray for forgiveness for everyone who took part in the hanging of Sadam Hussein. I belive in God and I do not belive that man has the right to make a Godly descison. I am an american so his blood is on my hands as well. What he did to his people is atroscious to say the least, and in my opinon only God can for give him for his sins. However Death on top of Death is senseless. Will this bring our troops home or are they in more danger than ever before?

hanged execution is totally false, bacause the punishment to do that is not appropriate with human nature. The right to do thai is God autority so we have tried to take position of God. It is really not human autority it means that we dont know who we really are ?

I agree that the hanging of President Sadam Hussein was totally wrong and President Bush will have to answer to God one day for being responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent Iraqi’s and also for the soilder’s lives that were lost in this totally illegal war. I had a dream that Sadam Hussein went on a journey of enlightenment and peace in another world where he will learn about love because he never knew or felt it in his life here on earth. God has a purpose for him too.
