THE CAPTURE OF SADDAM HUSSEIN: My Name Is Saddam Hussein. I Want to Negotiate; Ex-Dictator Not Co- Operative as US Continue Interrogation

But others were not so sure and any trial is likely to be some time off as Iraq does not yet have an operational war crimes court.

President George Bush,during a White House press conference, hinted he would be happy for Saddam to face trial in Iraq.

``We will work with Iraq is to develop a way to try him that will withstand international scrutiny,'' Bush said.
