Defense in Saddam Trial Demands Security By MARIAM FAM, Associated Press Writer
Sat Oct 22, 1:08 AM ET



BAGHDAD, Iraq - The body of a lawyer in Saddam Hussein's trial was found dumped in the street with two bullet wounds in the head hours after gunmen dressed as security forces took him from his office. A fearful defense team demanded Friday that the trial be delayed or moved out of Iraq.

Four American service members were killed in insurgent attacks, edging the total number of U.S. military deaths near 2,000 since the start of the Iraq war.

Investigators were trying to determine if the killers of Sunni Arab lawyer Saadoun Sughaiyer al-Janabi were Saddam opponents lashing out at the defense team or perhaps Sunni insurgents — including many Saddam supporters — trying to disrupt the trial. Al-Janabi was the lawyer for Awad Hamed al-Bandar, the former head of Saddam's Revolutionary Court.

Ten gunmen wearing police and military uniforms walked into al-Janabi's office Thursday evening in Baghdad's Shaab neighborhood, and he went with them without resistance, police Maj. Falah al-Mohammedawi said.
