Reports (unconfirmed) that Saddam Hussein has been captured in Tikrit

Reuters is reporting that they have reports that Saddam Hussein has been arrested in his home town of Tikrit.

It seems the reports come through IRNA (Iran News Agency) who are quoting remarks from Kurdish sources. If this report turns out to be true it will be both surprising (that he has been captured in Tikrit itself) and wonderful. I hope he has been arrested alive so he can be tried and humiliated before the Iraqi people - they, above all, need to know that the worst of their nightmare is over (if it is).
