Saddam Hussein in stable condition after being hanged from a Baghdad gallows...*

...and is rapidly assuming room temperature.

Former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein has been hanged, according to s tate-run Iraqiya television.

The report gave no furthers, but Arab television stations Al-Hurra and Al-Arabiya reported Saddam was hanged around 6 a.m. local time Saturday (10 p.m. ET Friday) in Baghdad's Green Zone.

But there has been no official confirmation from either the Iraqi or U.S. governments.

Also hanged were Saddam's half-brother Barzan Ibrahim and Awad Hamed al-Bandar, the former chief justice of the Revolutionary Court, according to the reports.
