BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The trial of Saddam Hussein, held up on Wednesday when the ousted Iraqi president refused to appear, was about to resume around 1:45 p.m. (1045 GMT), court officials indicated.
They told reporters covering the trial to take up their seats in the court after a delay of several hours.
"Refused to appear?" How is this even possible? Does he suddenly have the power of invisibility or something?
Just knock him over and drag him into the courtroom by his leg irons if you have to. Jesus.
