Lawyer Warns Against Saddam Execution

Saddam Hussein’s chief lawyer warned Sunday of worsening violence in Iraq and chaos across the Mideast if the ex-president is sentenced to death at his trial for a crackdown on a Shiite Muslim village in the 1980s. Khalil al-Dulaimi also said he would break a monthlong boycott and attend proceedings Monday when Saddam’s second trial resumes on separate charges of genocide against the Kurds. A verdict in Saddam’s first trial is expected Nov. 5. He and seven others are charged with crimes against humanity in connection with the killing of 148 Shiites from Dujail after a 1982 assassination attempt against him.Full Story
