[JURIST] Iraqi and US officials are working to repair technical difficulties that occurred during the opening day [JURIST report] of the Saddam Hussein trial [JURIST news archive] earlier this week, which was broadcast around the world. Troubles including a courtroom audio signal that faded in and out, inability to see defendants' faces, and an English translation that continually broke up were some of the issues that agitated reporters and others present to witness the trial. US embassy spokesman David Culkin said the problems would be fixed before the trial resumes on November 28 [JURIST report], calling it a "work in progress." The US government has given $75 million to help pay for security measures, building infrastructure, training Iraqi judges, and gathering evidence for the trial. AFP has more.
