Saddam Hussein appears at his trial in Baghdad, Dec. 21.
Saddam Hussein appeared at his trial Wednesday, two weeks after he refused to attend the last session in a court he called "unjust." The trial had been postponed to accomodate parliamentary elections last week.
The former Iraqi leader and seven co-defendants are charged with the deaths of more than 140 Shiite Muslims following a 1982 assassination attempt against him. The court heard testimony from a witness who delivered his account of the role of Saddam and his co-defendants in the massacre at Dujail.
