A Graveside Signal

Saddam Hussein's body was released yesterday for burial to tribal chief Ali al-Nida, and other leaders of the former Iraqi dictator's Albu Nasir tribe.

An interesting tableau was witnessed at the ceremony:

Many tribal leaders wore traditional red-checkered head scarves, but without turbans, a sign that they would exact revenge for Hussein, according to Arab tribal traditions.
