Iraq Releases Video of Saddam Questioned by Tribunal

  • VOA News

Iraq's special tribunal has released a video of a judge questioning Saddam Hussein about the killings of at least 50 Iraqis in a Shi'ite town.

The silent video is the first new footage of Saddam to be released in nearly a year. News reports say it was recorded Sunday. Saddam's Jordan-based defense team says it was not aware that Saddam was questioned, but the tribunal says Saddam's Iraqi lawyer was present. Iraqi leaders say they want to try Saddam soon for alleged genocide and crimes against humanity, but charges have not yet been filed.

Meanwhile President Bush spoke by telephone to Iraq's president, Jalal Talabani. The White House says they discussed the need for Iraq to include all its communities in its constitutional process. Mr. Bush also congratulated the Kurdish people on forming a regional government. In violence Monday, gunmen killed four policemen on a road linking Baghdad and Baquba.
