, Index number: MDE 14/003/2007

Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti and 'Awad Hamad al-Bandar al-Sa'dun were executed by hanging in the early hours of 15 January. The two had been sentenced to death on 5 November 2006, after an unfair trial before the Supreme Iraqi Criminal Tribunal (SICT). They were sentenced in connection with the killing of 148 people from the village of al-Dujail, north of Baghdad, after a failed attempt to assassinate former president Saddam Hussain in 1982.
