Saddam Could Hang Within a Month

Iraq's highest court has rejected Saddam Hussein's appeal of his conviction and death sentence. Under Iraq law, the death sentence must be carried out within thirty days of the execution order. The execution order requires the signatures of the Iraq President and two vice presidents. Iraq President Jalal Talabani is an opponent of the death penalty, but has said that he would support the decision of the two vice-presidents.
