The Iraqi Prime Minister’s Office has received hundreds of requests from volunteers wanting to hang Saddam Hussein, who will be executed in the coming month after his appeal was denied. Many of those who have volunteered to hang the former dictator are people whose family members were murdered by Saddam’s regime.
Saddam, for his part issued a good bye letter urging Iraqis to be patient and rely on God's help in fighting "against the unjust nations." "Long live jihad and the mujahedeen," he signed off.
Some Saddam loyalists have already threatened to retaliate if he is executed, warning that they would target US interests.
