Saddam Hussein returned to court Tuesday for his genocide trial, two days after another panel convicted him of crimes against humanity and sentenced him to hang. Saddam, wearing a black suit and white shirt with a handkerchief, found his way quietly to his seat among the other six defendants charged in the Operation Anfal crackdown against Iraqi Kurds in the late 1980s. The chief judge then convened the session and called the first witness. On Sunday, Saddam was convicted in the deaths of nearly 150 Shi'ite Muslims following a 1982 assassination attempt against him in the town of Dujail in 1982.
