Saddam Hussein took his seat in the dock in his genocide trial Wednesday, a day after the presiding judge threw him out of court in a raucous session during which witnesses testified that women were raped while in detention during a 1980s crackdown on the Kurds. With Saddam and his six co-defendants sitting quietly, chief judge Mohammed Oreibi al-Khalifa called on a Kurdish witness to take the stand.
