Saddam Hussein Executed

Saddam Hussein has been executed.

Hussein reportedly died at 9:05 p.m. central time. On Tuesday, an Iraqi court affirmed his death sentence. Saddam is convicted of killing 148 Iraqis in 1982.

Saddam was executed by hanging in a secret location.

As all Iraqi death row prisoners, Saddam was hooded, and just before his death, he was given a chance to pray with a Sunni Muslim cleric.
