Saddam Hussein was back in court in Baghdad on Monday for the latest hearing in his trial for genocide against ethnic Kurds in the late 1980s.

Lawyers for the ousted Iraqi president and his six co-defendants said on Sunday they would stay away from the court, partly in protest at the Iraqi government's sacking of the chief judge in the case last week.
