Hussein executed, Iraqi TV stations report
POSTED: 10:21 p.m. EST, December 29, 2006

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has been executed, according to two Arabic language media outlets.

Hussein was hanged before dawn on Saturday in Iraq, at about 6 a.m. (10 p.m. Friday ET), the U.S.-backed Al-Hurra television reported.

Earleri, Munir Haddad, a judge on the appeals court that upheld the former dictator's death sentence, and an adviser to Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki each confirmed the paperwork needed for Hussein's execution had been prepared late Friday.

"All the procedures have been completed," Haddad said.

At the same time, a U.S. district judge refused a request to stay the execution. (Read U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly's decision (pdf))

1. since Saddam was actually a US POW
The execution remains a major violation of the Geneva Convention.
