Baghdad: Saddam Hussein was sentenced on Sunday to death by hanging for his role in a brutal crackdown nearly 25 years ago in Dujail – the once obscure Iraqi town that is now a symbol of his regime's cruelty. The court said Saddam should be hanged within 30 days. Appeals, if any, must be filed with in 10 days, the court ruled, before it was adjourned for the day. Saddam shouted at the judges, saying "Down with the court and you people. You are the enemies of humanity." He also abused US and "other Western forces". Also sentenced to death were Barzan Hassan, Saddam Hussein's half-brother and former head of the intelligence agency, and Awad Bandar, the former chief judge of the Revolutionary Court. write out your views on this topic ? whats your opinion of the topic ?
