Saddam Co-Defendants Could Hang Thursday

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — Preparations are under way to hang two of Saddam Hussein’s co-defendants on Thursday but the details still have to be worked out with the American military, an Iraqi government official said Wednesday.

Saddam’s half brother Barzan Ibrahim, a former intelligence chief, and Awad Hamed al-Bandar, the former chief justice of the Revolutionary Court, were originally scheduled to hang with Saddam, who was put to death on Saturday.

But their execution was delayed until after Islam’s Eid al-Adha holiday, which ends Wednesday for Iraq’s majority Shiites.

Al-Arabiya satellite television and Al-Furat TV, run by Iraq’s major Shiite Muslim political organization, both reported Wednesday that Ibrahim and al-Bandar would go to the gallows on Thursday.
