In pictures: Saddam in Dujail
Saddam ambushed

The visit then takes a turn for the unexpected. A group of men stage an ambush and open fire on Saddam's car.

The attack is not captured on camera, but what happened next forms the basis of the first criminal charges that Saddam Hussein now faces.

The uninjured Iraqi leader is shown personally questioning suspects by the side of the road.
