Prime Minister Helen Clark said Monday the guilty verdict handed down to Saddam Hussein was the appropriate result - but she does not want him executed. Saddam and two of his senior allies were sentenced Sunday to be hanged after an Iraqi court found them guilty of crimes against humanity. Clark said it was "highly appropriate" and no surprise that the former Iraqi dictator was found guilty. "However, I have a long-standing objection to the death penalty and that will always be a concern to me," she told radio network Newstalk ZB.
