Ali Hassan Al-Majid
Birth: Nov. 30, 1940
Salah ad Din, Iraq
Death: Jan. 25, 2010
Baghdad, Iraq

Iraqi General. The cousin of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, and one of the most brutal members of his inner circle. Nicknamed "Chemical Ali", he led sweeping military campaigns in the 1980s and 1990s against Kurdish rebels and Shia religious dissidents, and carried out atrocities against Iraq's civilian population. He was responsible for the 1988 gas attack that killed over 5000 Kurds. Captured by Allied troops in 2003, he was tried for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, and sentenced to death. He was executed by hanging on the same gallows where Saddam was put to death. (bio by: Ron Moody)
