Saddam, 2 Others Sentenced to Death

iWon News:
"Saddam Hussein and two other men were convicted and sentenced Sunday to death by hanging for war crimes in the 1982 killings of 148 people in the town of Dujail, as the former leader, trembling, shouted 'God is great!'

After the verdict was read, Saddam yelled out, 'Long live the people and death to their enemies. Long live the glorious nation, and death to its enemies!'

Clashes immediately broke out in north Baghdad's heavily Sunni Azamiyah district.

Saddam initially refused the chief judge's order to rise; two bailiffs lifted the ousted ruler to his feet and he remained standing through the sentencing."
