The week's news at a glance.
Saddam Hussein was admitted to a hospital for intravenous feeding this week after collapsing in his jail cell. The former Iraqi dictator has been on a hunger strike for more than two weeks as a protest against inadequate security for his defense team. Three of his lawyers have been killed over the course of his 10-month-long trial. Saddams half-brother, former intelligence chief Barzan Ibrahim, has also been on a hunger strike but was still feisty this week. At the beginning of closing arguments, he argued with the judge and refused to accept a court-appointed lawyer. The trial could result in death sentences for Saddam, Barzan, and their co-defendants for allegedly ordering a massacre of Shiites in 1982.
