The trial of Saddam Hussein and fellow members of his regime resumed Sunday, with the judge calling in each defendant individually to present his testimony. The session began with defendant Mizhar Abdullah Ruwayyid, allegedly a low level official from Saddam's former ruling Baath Party, called before the judge. He and chief justice Raouf Abdel-Rahman began arguing. Before the session, court officials said they intend to bring each defendant out to present his testimony. It was not clear whether they would be questioned by prosecution lawyers.
