RIPOLI, Dec 29 (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein is a prisoner of war and must
be tried by Iraq's invaders, the United States and Britain, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said on Friday. "Saddam Hussein is a prisoner of war ... He's been overthrown by foreign invading forces, not by the Iraqi army or the Iraqi people," Gaddafi said. Iraqi officials said on Friday that Saddam may be hanged within hours, and the prime minister met U.S. officials to determine whether the execution could go ahead
before a week-long religious holiday.
"The countries that captured him should try him -- America or Britain -- because all Iraq is under occupation, including the judges and the lawyers," he told reporters in Tripoli.
