Ten years since Iraq's Saddam executed

Ousted Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was hanged inside one of his own regime’s former torture centres a decade ago on December 30, 2006. On December 30, 2006, Saddam was hanged at the military intelligence headquarters in the Kadhimiyah district of northern Baghdad. Officials who witnessed the pre-dawn execution say Saddam, 69, remained defiant to the end, railing against his Iranian and American enemies and praising insurgents who had pushed Iraq to the brink of civil war.
