The chief judge threw Saddam Hussein out of court on Tuesday after an argument during his trial on charges of genocide against the Kurds. The judge, Mohammed Oreibi al-Khalifa, cut off the microphone as Saddam attempted to speak. He then pointed to court bailiffs to escort the ex-president from the courtroom. Saddam interrupted the proceedings by shouting a verse from the Quran, the Muslim holy book. "Fight them and God will punish them," Saddam yelled in what appeared to be a call for members of his disbanded Arab Ba'ath Socialist Party to continue fighting US forces in Iraq.
