The Saddam Hussein trial resumed Monday after a two-week recess, with two of the seven defendants expected to give their final summations. Saddam was not in court, but was supposed to appear later in the week. Saddam was taken to the hospital Sunday on the 17th day of a hunger strike launched to demand better security for his lawyers. Prosecutor Jaafar al-Moussawi said the ex-president's condition had stabilized and he should be fit to appear this week.
