Insurgents killed eight Iraqis and two coalition soldiers - one American and one British - in attacks before the start of Saddam Hussein's trial on Wednesday, including a gun battle with Iraqi police in Baghdad, officials said. A bomb also went off at a famous monument in a Baghdad square honoring the 8th-century founder of Baghdad to whom Saddam had often compared himself. The blast, which toppled the bust of Abu Jaafar Al-Mansour but caused no injuries, appeared to be a jab at the former dictator. Meanwhile, Iraqis continued to await the outcome of last weekend's constitutional referendum, as the slower than expected vote counting continued.
