Saddam Hussein attended his trial for genocide against the Kurds Wednesday, a day after he wrote to the chief judge that he no longer wants to go to court. The deposed Iraqi leader walked into the courtroom with a broad smile and took a seat alongside his six co-defendants. It was not clear what prompted him to be present. The chief judge, Mohammed Oreibi al-Khalifa, called a prosecution witness to the stand, reversing his Monday decision that the court would not hear more witnesses but instead review the evidence.
