The fate of Saddam Hussein's body remained unclear Saturday, with one Iraqi official saying it may eventually be handed over to his family. A member of his defense team, however, expressed concern that Saddam's remains would be destined for an unmarked grave. National Security adviser Mouwafak al-Rubaie, who attended the execution told Iraqi state television that his body may be handed over to his family at some point, but that no decision had yet been made. The body, he said, was held by the government. His immediate family, including his three daughters, all live outside Iraq.
