Saddam Hussein Ejected From Court Again

Saddam Hussein in court (file photo) (epa) October 10, 2006 -- Saddam Hussein was today ejected from court, the fourth time that the former Iraq dictator has been removed from the courtroom in the past five sessions of his trial for genocide.

The chief judge ordered him to leave when he began talking after a Kurdish witness finished giving testimony.

Hussein and six codefendants are on trial over their involvement in the Anfal campaign against ethnic Kurds in the late 1980s.
