An Iraqi appeals court has upheld the death sentence for Saddam Hussein, Iraq's national security adviser said Tuesday. "The appeals court approved the verdict to hang Saddam," said the official, Mouwafak al-Rubaie. On November 5, an Iraqi court sentenced Saddam to the gallows for the 1982 killings of 148 people in a single Shi'ite town after an attempt on his life there.
