Morning Edition, October 19, 2005 · Former leader of Iraq Saddam Hussein's trial opened Wednesday in Baghdad. Saddam faces multiple charges of crimes against humanity for ordering a mass killing of Shiite men in 1982.

Saddam refused to acknowledge the tribunal's authority and maintained that he was still the Iraqi president. He and seven associates also on trial face the death penalty if convicted.
