Iraqi leaders named a tribunal of judges and prosecutors to try Saddam Hussein, placing a longtime opponent of the ousted dictator in the forefront of the case against him and his former Baathist inner circle, a spokesman announced Tuesday.

A senior member of Ahmad Chalabi’s  Iraqi National Congress was appointed to head the all-Iraqi tribunal — a potentially controversial choice.
