City Council working on torture resolution

CHICAGO Earlier this year, city lawmakers approved a settlement involving former inmates who claimed they had been tortured by police under Burge's leadership.

The statue of limitations has run out on charges directly related to the alleged torture, but Chicago Alderman Ed Smith says he wants to pursue the arrest, indictment and conviction of Burge through international law.

Burge denies any wrongdoing.
