Details of the convictions and sentences for Saddam Hussein and seven co-defendants in trial for 1982 war crimes in the town of Dujail. The specific convictions come under the broad headings, under Iraqi law, of crimes against humanity and war crimes. The sentences are served concurrently in cases where a defendant received more than one conviction and sentence.

The three defendants sentenced to death are likely to be hanged together, Iraqi officials have said. They are Saddam, his half brother Barzan Ibrahim and the former head of the Revolutionary Court, Awad Hamed al-Bandar.
