Top Saddam aide back in court
The former foreign minister and deputy prime minister, who surrendered to American forces in April 2003 shortly after the invasion, said people who had tried to assassinate him in the past were out to finish the job.

Olmert faces second grilling
JERUSALEM — Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will be questioned this week for a second time in the latest corruption probe against him, which has stirred calls for his resignation, police said yesterday.
Police are seeking to establish whether Mr. Olmert dispensed any favors in exchange for questionable funds he received from U.S. financier Morris Talansky during the 13 years before he became Israel’s leader in 2006.
Mr. Olmert, 62, was mayor of Jerusalem from 1993 to 2003 and then the Cabinet’s trade and industry minister. State Prosecutor Moshe Lador told the Israeli High Court on Monday that Mr. Olmert received envelopes stuffed with cash from Mr. Talansky.
