Saddam Hussein's Trial Starts

By  | 

They're back in court in Iraq after a five-week break in the trial of ousted dictator Saddam Hussein.

At the defense table today is former U-S Attorney General Ramsey Clark.

The chief judge ordered all handcuffs and shackles removed from Saddam and his seven co-defendants before they entered the court.

Saddam was the last of the eight to come inside, walking with a swagger and greeting people with a traditional Arabic greeting, "peace be upon the people of peace."
