Socialist candidate Segolene Royal has criticized the execution of Saddam Hussein today by the Iraqi government.
"I am opposed to the death penalty, this was for an abominable dictator...Moreover I question myself. What major repercussions will this have on a part of the Iraqi population, the images of this execution diffused over the whole world?...is to add humiliation to shame. It would not be necessary that the handling of these images ends up creating a feeling of solidarity with a dictator whose acts are definitively indefensible."
Royal expressed "an indefinable feeling of disgust" over the situation.
