Iraqis have set up a tribunal to try Saddam Hussein and other members of his regime.
A spokesman for the Iraqi National Congress says the tribunal will be headed by Salem Chalabi -- the nephew of I-N-C head Ahmed Chalabi.
The spokesman says Salem Chalabi has named a panel of seven judges and four prosecutors, with more to be selected at a later time.
No date has been set for the trial of Saddam Hussein, who has been in US custody since his December capture.
The developments came as violence continued Tuesday. Insurgents fired mortars on a prison near Baghdad, killing 22 inmates and wounding more than 100 others. US military officials say the prisoners were either involved in anti-coalition activities or remnants of Saddam Hussein's regime.
The motive for the attack was not immediately clear, but US General Mark Kimmitt says it may have been aimed at inspiring a prison break or uprising.
In a separate development, US officials confirmed that two Arab employees of a US funded Iraqi television station were killed by American fire Monday. And in northern Iraq, the military says one American soldier was killed in a convoy attack near Mosul.
