Saddam Hussein attacked in court

Early indications are that everyone's favourite villain has just been attacked in court! Not shure whether he actually got hurt or not...

...I'll dig up a link...wait out!
Sky finally catch up (joke - they're normally very good, of course!):


Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was attacked by an unidentified man during his appearance at a court hearing in Baghdad on Thursday, his defence team has said.

The team said the man attacked Saddam and the two exchanged blows during a hearing attended by defence lawyer Khalil Dulaimi.

"As the president stood to leave the courtroom one of those present attacked him and there was an exchange of blows between the man and the president," the statement said.

The head of the tribunal did nothing to stop the assault, the statement alleged.

It did not say if Saddam was hurt.

The Iraqi Special Tribunal trying Saddam has released newphotographs of the toppled leader being questioned on the suppression of Kurdish and Shi'ite uprisings in 1991.

The photographs were taken during Thursday's hearing.

Saddam has been formally charged with the killings of Shi'ite Muslims in the village of Dujail in 1982 but no date has been set for his trial.
The story is here.
shame we couldn't put George Bush and Saddam in the boxing ring, i would pay to see that.
What on earth are they playing at?

Surely saddam should be separated from the riff raff in the public galleries.

Surprised it wasn't something worse!!!!!
