From Times Wire Reports

Two Afghan men went on trial at The Hague on charges of committing war crimes, including killing and torture, when they were officials of the Khad secret police during communist rule of Afghanistan in the 1980s.

Hesamuddin Hesam, 57, and Habibullah Jalalzoy, 59, were arrested late last year. Their lawyers argued unsuccessfully for withdrawal of the charges.
