BAGHDAD, Iraq -- The Saddam Hussein trial resumed Wednesday after a lengthy delay but without the ex-president, who had declared the day before that he would not take part in an "unjust" court.
The seven other defendants and Saddam's lawyers were present in the courtroom when Chief Judge Rizgar Mohammed Amin convened the session at 3 p.m., about four hours late.
