Former Iraq VP’s Dying Wish Granted

Posted on Mar 20, 2007

U.S. and Iraqi authorities have honored the final request of former Iraqi Vice President Taha Yassin Ramadan: to be buried next to Saddam Hussein. After Ramadan’s execution Tuesday, his remains were flown to Tikrit, where hundreds of mourners were gathering.
