NEW YORK: U.S. online service to show Saddam Hussein trial

Court TV's online service will offer full coverage of Saddam Hussein's trial when it resumes, perhaps as early as next Monday. Court TV Extra said Tuesday it would show the trial on a 20-minute delay. It is scheduled to air from roughly 4 to 9 a.m. EST (0900 to 1400 GMT), with on-demand highlight clips also available.

Two attorneys representing co-defendants in Saddam's trial have been assassinated since the trial began Oct. 19. Saddam and seven others are on trial for the 1982 deaths of 148 Shiite Muslims. If convicted, they could be hanged.

Defense lawyers are threatening to boycott Monday's resumption of the trial to protest the slayings of defense team members. Iraqi court officials say they are prepared to appoint substitute lawyers, which would likely force further delays, the AP reports.

Court TV Extra is a subscription service costing $5.95 (Ђ5) a month. New users can try it free for 30 days. It will probably be the only place to watch ongoing coverage of the trial; broadcast news networks were likely to show highlights.
