    Saddam Hussein's trial has begun. The trial of the once dictator-style leader of Iraq started at around noon Baghdad time. Saddam Hussein will be tried for crimes against humanity, the details of which at this hearing will be for the killing of more than 140 Shi'ites more than twenty years ago. Along with Saddam, seven other members of the now defunct Baath Party are being tried for a failed attempt on the former leader's life in 1982.

    The defense is expected to petition for an adjournment saying on the grounds that it has not had enough time to prepare fro the case, and that the court is not a legitimate body.
