Two codefendants of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein were hanged before dawn today in a grisly execution that apparently tore the head off one defendant, an Iraqi government spokesman said. Barzan Ibrahim Hasan, Hussein's half brother and former intelligence chief, and Awad Hamed Bandar, a former Revolutionary Court judge, were put to death in Baghdad 16 days after Hussein was hanged, amid a media blackout.

Iraqi lawmakers overwhelmingly approved an ethnically and religiously diverse Cabinet on Thursday, but gaping holes in the new administration and continued sectarian wrangling marred the historic day. Five ministries, including oil and defense, received only caretaker chiefs. Two deputy premierships also remained unfilled, indicating that the long negotiations to seat the nation's first freely elected government in half a century were not yet concluded.

The Arab League early today granted the U.S.-appointed Iraqi Governing Council a seat on the 22-member pan-Arab organization -- despite fears that such recognition could be seen as a sign of support for the American-led invasion of Iraq. With its decision, the league officially recognized the council -- appointed July 13 after U.S. forces deposed Saddam Hussein -- as an authority able to represent Iraq on the regional stage. Torn for weeks over whether to recognize Iraq's U.S.

The meeting was attended by the foreign ministers of Syria, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan and Egypt.

One of the most troublesome issues in the negotiations between the United States and Iraq is what will happen to Iraq's assets when the country regains full sovereignty. It is subject to the United Nations' Chapter 7 status, a legal designation that has stripped the nation of its full rights since its 1990 invasion of Kuwait. Iraq wants the U.N. Security Council to remove it from Chapter 7 in December. Baghdad is negotiating a controversial bilateral security arrangement with Washington to replace the U.N. mandate for U.S. forces in Iraq, which falls within the Chapter 7 apparatus.
