Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
One photo shows Odai (Oday) Hussein with a thick beard and a severely bruised face.
Meanwhile, there's word that some members of Iraq's Governing Council have been shown the bodies.
And a coalition spokesman says that there "isn't the slightest doubt" that the men in the pictures are indeed Saddam's sons.
That type of confirmation is important, because many Iraqis will likely will be skeptical of U-S reports.
Again, we caution you about the graphic content of the photographs.

Many of the affected employees answer questions and take orders over the phone for people who order their prescription medications through A-A-R-P Pharmacy services. Yesterday, those workers were notified that their jobs are being transferred to the company's other call centers in Pe

Ovation's parent company, UnitedHealth Group, says it will continue to maintain a presence in the Roanoke area. The company says about 200 employees will remain on board for other jobs.
