An Iraqi judge has adjourned the trial of ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein until January 24th, following two days of often graphic testimony from witnesses to a 1982 massacre in northern Iraq.
The court heard testimony Thursday from three witnesses who described incidents of torture and executions in the village of Dujail.
Saddam also repeated allegations of torture and abuse while in U.S. custody. An Iraqi judge, Raid Juhi said Saddam and seven co-defendants had never complained to officials about abuse or displayed signs of mistreatment. U.S. officials have denied Saddam's allegations.
Saddam and his co-defendants are accused of ordering or carrying out the torture and massacre of more than 140 Shi'ite Muslims in Dujail after a failed attempt on Saddam's life.
