Iraqi officials said a committee from the Interior Ministry would likely question everyone, including senior Iraqi officials, who was present at the hanging, where witnesses mocked and jeered the ousted president as he stood at the gallows. Hours later, grainy video of the event, taken with a cell-phone camera, was broadcast around the world, bringing more pressure on Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to take action. The Italian government, which like all members of the European Union opposes the death penalty, said after the appearance of the video that it would push at the United Nations for a worldwide moratorium on capital punishment. The video was the latest example of how amateurs using modern technology are exposing abuses and holding the powerful to account.

The atmosphere of the execution drew criticism around the world from nations that oppose as well as support capital punishment.

But neither could keep up with the news. And the debate about the niceties of showing the stark images of death had already been taken out of the western media's hands.
