How many times can they kill him?

Chemical Ali has just received his 4th death sentence.

Saddam Hussein’s notorious cousin “Chemical Ali” was convicted and sentenced to death by hanging yesterday for ordering the gassing of Kurds in 1988, killing more than 5000 in an air raid thought to be the worst single attack of its kind on civilians.

It was Ali Hassan al-Majid’s fourth death sentence for crimes against humanity in Iraq.

The previous three have not been carried out, in part because survivors of the poison gas attack on the Kurdish town of Halabja wanted to have their case against al-Majid heard.

So now they are going to hang him 4 times? How does that work I wonder.
