Fugitive Iraqi VP: I'm Innocent, Trial a Sham

Iraq's Shiite prime minister started gunning for the Sunni vice president almost immediately after the last U.S. troops left


Iraq's fugitive Sunni vice president says the terror trial that convicted him of masterminding death squads against rivals was illegitimate and is accusing the nation's Shiite prime minister of being behind it.

Tariq al-Hashemi maintained his innocence Monday at a news conference in Turkey, where he is in exile.
