PM Howard: "Death's OK by me"

Australian Prime Minister John Howard has stated that the death penalty for Saddam is fine by him. He is also in favor of an Iraqi trail, as opposed to an international one.

Prime Minister John Howard said today he supported the death penalty for Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

Asked if he would support the death penalty, Mr Howard told the Nine Network: "If it were imposed, absolutely."

He said he would prefer to see Saddam tried in Iraq than in an international tribunal.

"I want him tried in circumstances where he will receive the justice he denied the other people," Mr Howard said.

Prime Minister Howard did not comment on whether or not Osama bin Ladren should be sent to a Dutch prison.
