The Saddam Trial continues

You would hardly know i these days but the trial of the former dictator Saddam Hussein is still going on in Iraq.In todays developments Iraqi guards at the trial manhandled a Lebanese lawyer from the court as witnesses prepared to give testimony.

Reuters reports that Defense lawyer Bushra Khalil threw her robe as she was bundled from the chamber by guards after complaining about being thrown out of a previous session.

A week ago, all eight defendants were charged with crimes against humanity over the killings and detentions, deportations and tortures to which 399 people from Dujail were subjected in reprisal for the attempt on Saddam's life.

Saddam refused to plead and like the others a not guilty plea was entered for him
