Iraqi-Americans Cheers Reports of Saddam Execution

By Rick Pearcey

Dearborn, Mich. -- "A crowd of Iraqi-Americans cheered and cried late Friday outside a mosque as some Arab media reported that Saddam Hussein was executed," reports AP.

"The crowd of more than 150 had gathered earlier in anticipation of Saddam's execution, praying for the death of the former Iraqi dictator as people honked car horns, sang and danced in celebration.

"Chants of 'Now there's peace, Saddam is dead' in English and Arabic rang into the night in this Detroit suburb."
