Testimony Continues

The court holding the current trial of Saddam Hussein for killing 180,000 Kurds in 1988, heard testimony on Monday from a Kurdish witness who spoke about the shelling of his villages with chemical weapons.

The witness, a supervisor in the education ministry in Kurdistan, said that his mother, wife and daughters were killed in front of him.

He said that he lost 25 members of his family, who were living in houses close to each other in a village in Kurdistan.

Justice Mohammad Oraibi adjourned the session until Wednesday.
