Video Evidence

Video evidence, showing Kurdish villagers dying from a chemical attack, was shown at yesterday's session of Saddam Hussein's trial.

The video were shot in April 1987 and May 1988, and shows attack helicopters flying low over the mountains as villagers scatter.

The video then showed the aftermath of the chemical attacks; bodies, including a baby.

The defence claims that the government was conducting a legitimate military operation against separatists, who threatened the government while Iraq was at war with Iran.

The trial continues.
