Libya announced yesterday that they would erect a statue of Saddam Hussein on the gallows. Flags were flown at half-mast.
MSNBC reported:

TRIPOLI, Libya – Libya will raise a statue of Saddam Hussein alongside that of a national hero hanged in 1931 for leading the Libyan resistance against Italian occupation, the government said Thursday.

“The revolutionary committees have decided to erect a statue of Saddam Hussein standing beside Omar Mukhtar on the gallows,” it said in a statement.

Libya declared three days of mourning after Saddam’s death and cancelled public celebrations around the Eid religious holiday. Flags on government buildings flew at half-mast.
