Saddam Hussein's feared sons Uday and Qusay, killed last month by U.S. troops, were buried in the deposed dictator's home town of Tikrit on Saturday in a swift and heavily guarded ceremony, locals said.

They said the bodies were wrapped in Iraqi flags and buried in a local cemetery after arriving from Baghdad in an ambulance. There was a heavy U.S. army presence and journalists were prevented from photographing or filming the burial.
