Saddam Hussein in hospital

Saddam Hussein in hospital
Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein is in hospital, two weeks into a hunger strike.

The chief prosecutor in Saddam's trial said he would not be in court on Monday. The ousted leader is charged with crimes against humanity. Saddam began the hunger strike over demands for a fair trial and in protest at the murder of his lawyer.
