Saddam's Tomb Suffers Extensive Damage in Fighting as Iraqi Security Forces Battle for Tikrit

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

Fighting intensified to the north and south of Saddam Hussein's hometown Sunday as Iraqi security forces vowed to reach the center of Tikrit within 48 hours. Associated Press video from the village of Ouja, just south of Tikrit, shows all that remains of Hussein's once-lavish tomb are the support columns that held up the roof.
