12/05/05 World News: Suicide Bombing at Israeli Mall Kills 4


A suicide bombing at an Israeli shopping mall in the town of Netanya has killed at least four people and wounded more than 35 others.
Police say many of the wounded are in critical condition.
Officials say the bomber blew himself up in a line of people going through a customary security check at the mall's entrance.

The trial of ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein resumed in Baghdad today (Monday), but was immediately disrupted when defense lawyers walked out in a protest over the legitimacy of the court.
The defense team, which includes former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, also protested the presiding judge's refusal to allow foreign lawyers to address the court.
Saddam stood up to declare the court was appointed by U.S. occupiers, and he shouted, "Long live Iraq."

International monitors say Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev's landslide election victory was flawed.
Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe who monitored Sunday's vote issued a statement today (Monday). They cited several irregularities, including restrictions on campaigning, interference in polling stations, multiple voting and pressure to vote in favor of the incumbent. However, a group of observers from the Russia-led Commonwealth of Independent States said the balloting was "free and fair."
