Tonight on Special Report with Brit Hume:

The U.S.-led administration ruling Iraq says it will set up a special court to try Saddam Hussein loyalists who have committed crimes against U.S. and British forces. The announcement follows the arrests of more than 400 people in the Baghdad area, part of the U.S. military's "Operation Desert Scorpion (search)."


President Bush continues this week's focus on domestic issues and his re-election campaign. He visited a Virginia job training center where he showcased his proposal on unemployment. Later he and Vice President Cheney start a fund-raising drive they hope will rake in more than $200 million he's looking to raise for his re-election campaign (search).

Masked and heavily armed French police launch a massive raid on an Iranian opposition group accused of links to terrorism, detaining more than 160 sympathizers for questioning.

The Democratic presidential campaign (search) shifts into higher gear with several candidates offering plans to address the major issues of the day.

It's been thirty years since the Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade (search), the landmark case that legalized abortion. The woman who came to symbolize a woman's right to end a pregnancy changed her mind about abortion nearly a decade ago, and now she is asking for the ruling to be overturned.

Debate over improving Medicare kicks off with a tone of bipartisanship in the Senate, but the mood is decidedly less cooperative in the House.

Details on those stories and more on Special Report with Brit Hume.
