The bust of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein and the actual rope used to hang him, are on display in the living room of former national security adviser Mowaffak al-Rubaie, seen during an interview with the AFP where he gave details of his execution, on December 23, 2013. Saddam was executed by hanging in Iraq in the early hours of December 30, 2006, in Baghdad after he was captured by US military forces hidding in an underground hole at a farm in the village of ad-Dawr, near his hometown of Tikrit in northern Iraq on December 13, 2003  AFP PHOTO/SABAH ARAR (Photo by SABAH ARAR / AFP)
