Witnesses testify in former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's trial
Tuesday, December 6, 2005
Witnesses who feared showing their face or voice were allowed to testify in a covered box with their voice altered. Their names were also protected and each witness was named with a letter. The defense was, however, allowed to know the name of the witnesses as long as those names were not disclosed outside the proceedings.
Tuesday's court session lasted around nine hours.
