Saddam Hussein's second trial continues. During Tuesday's session, Ali Mostafa Hama, a survivor of the Anfal campaign, told the court that he saw 8 to 12 planes drop bombs on his village during the incident.
He went on to say that he saw a green gas leak from the bombs, which caused people to vomit and be blinded as they inhaled the gas. He watched a baby die.
Today Najib Khudair Ahmad, a Kurdish woman, testified before the judges. Her face had been scarred by a chemical weapon attack on her village of Sheikwasan, which also made her blind.
She described Saddam as being "worse than Hitler".
"Saddam Hussein used to shout about 'the Iraqi people'
If we were his people, why did he bomb us with all sorts of weapons?"
The prosecutor said that over one thousand testimonies from victims had been recorded, and "65 to 75 witnesses will testify".
It is expected that the proceedings of the Anfal trial will last around four months.
