Saddam's Body Taken To Tikrit

Saddam's body has been flown on a U.S. plane to Tikrit where it was handed over leaders of Saddam's tribe for burial, which may happen as soon as Sunday.

Despite the wishes of Saddam's exiled daughter to have the body temporarily buried in Yeman to prevent desecration, the body will be probably be buried in a family cemetery outside Tikrit or in Ramadi.
