The trial of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein is scheduled to resume Monday in Baghdad. Saddam and seven co-defendants face charges related to the 1982 killing of more than 140 Shiite villagers in the town of Dujail, north of Baghdad. War crimes expert Mike Newton talks to NPR's Renee Montagne about the case.
