Saddam Hussein exhibit to go on display in Okla.

Published: December 9, 2013

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma History Center is slated to unveil a special Saddam Hussein exhibit to mark the 10th anniversary of the former Iraqi dictator's capture.

Among the highlights of the display in Oklahoma City is a European-tailored service uniform worn by Hussein.

The exhibit— which also includes firearms and other items— will go on full display at the center later this month. It's open to the public.

Retired Army Lt. Col. and former Oklahoma lawmaker Steve Russell, who helped lead the hunt for Hussein, is loaning the collection to the center for the exhibit.

Hussein was captured Dec. 13, 2003 and executed in 2006.
