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.
An Army officer has recommended the execution of four soldiers, should they be found guilty of murder. The soldiers are accused of improperly shooting three Iraqi detainees during a raid. No U.S. soldier has been executed since 1961.
