Baghdad - Celebratory gunfire rang out over the Iraqi capital and much of the country on Sunday amid growing reports that ex-president Saddam Hussein had been captured in his hometown Tikrit, AFP correspondents reported.
Joyful Iraqis let off prolonged bursts of fire from automatic weapons and other guns they are allowed to keep for self-defence. The huge Shia slum of Sadr City was still calm.
"It's a great joy for the Iraqi people because a great dictator has been arrested," said Governing Council member Mahmud Othman.
In the Shia holy city of Najaf, which suffered harsh oppression under Saddam's Sunni-led government, people took to the streets to dance, an AFP correspondent said.
Yes, joy. They are happy.
Now tell us again how wrong this war is.
Update: Of course, Metafilter pisses on the news.
Did you see the Iraqi reporters cheering at the press conference? Damn. That is good tv. I'm so happy for all Iraqis.
