Saddam Execution

The execution of Saddam Hussein is planned for 7pm Pacific Time on Friday. This is 6am in Baghdad.

The U.S. handed the former Iraqi leader over to Iraqi authorities. Today, Hussein met with his two half brothers and requested a final meeting with lawyers. That meeting was quickly rejected.

Many international groups oppose the execution. The White House says that Iraq is a sovereign government and they will make their own decisions.
