Death to Saddam

The tribunal trying the case of Saddam Hussein for the massacre at Dujail in 1982 found him guilty of war crimes and sentenced him to death by hanging. Likewise, 2 other defendants were found guilty and sentenced to death. Three were found guilty of murder and torture and sentenced to 15 years. And one defendant was acquited for lack of evidence. Here’s an AP article that talks about it.

Edit: I should’ve added that all of the people who were sentenced to death have an automatic appeal, so the sentence is not final yet, but we can hope.
