The brother-in-law of the new judge presiding over Saddam Hussein's genocide trial was killed and his nephew injured in a shooting Friday morning in Baghdad, police said. Kadhim Abdul-Hussein were fatally shot and his son Karrar injured in the capital's western Ghazaliyah neighborhood by unidentified assailants, police 1st Lt. Thaer Mahmoud said. It was not immediately clear whether they were targeted because they were related to Judge Mohammed Oreibi al-Khalifa, who took over the Saddam trial last week, or if it was another of the sectarian attacks that have been plaguing Baghdad.
