Iraq hanging video shows severed head of Saddam's half-brother

The official video of hanging of Saddam Hussein's co-defendants screened for reporters Monday shows the former leader's half brother lying headless below gallows, his severed head several meters (yards) away.

The video shows Barzan Ibrahim, Saddam's half brother and former intelligence chief, and Awad Hamed al-Bandar, head of Iraq's Revolutionary Court, being hanged side by side.

They wore red prison jumpsuits. As they reached the gallows black hoods were put on their heads.

Five masked men surrounded them, the AP reports.

After the trap doors opened, al-Bandar could be seen dangling from the rope. Ibrahim's body was lying on the floor, chest down, his severed head meters (yards) away.

The execution was conducted on the same gallows where Saddam was hanged Dec. 30.
