An anonymous reader writes "Well it seems that Saddam Hussein, the deposed Iraqi ruler, has been executed by his own people:

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) — Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has been executed, a witness said. "Saddam's body is in front me," said an official in the prime minister's office when CNN telephoned. "It's over." In the background, Shiite chanting could be heard. When asked about the chanting, the official said "These are employees of the prime minister's office and government chanting in celebration." The witness reported that celebrations broke out after Hussein was dead, and that there was "dancing around the body."
