From The Guardian Unlimited:
Saddam, 69, and two others, including his half-brother, were sentenced to death on November 5 for crimes against humanity over the killings of 148 Shias from the town of Dujail after he escaped assassination there in 1982...
...Human rights groups have criticised Mr Maliki's comments for appearing to prejudge the ruling of the nine-member appeals court. UN human rights experts have called on Iraq's government not to carry out the death sentence, saying Saddam's trial was seriously flawed.
