Without firing a single shot, U.S. forces captured Saddam Hussein as he hid in the bottom of a hole in a home near Tikrit, officials announced Sunday at a Baghdad press conference.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we got him," L. Paul Bremer, the U.S. administrator in Iraq, announced.
"The tyrant is a prisoner," Bremer said.
The former Iraqi dictator was captured Saturday at 8:30 p.m. in the cellar of a farmhouse in the town of Adwar, 10 miles from Tikrit, ending one of the most intense manhunts in history. Saddam has been on the run since the fall of Baghdad to U.S. forces on April 9.
