Iraqi security officials say gunmen have killed a lawyer representing Saddam Hussein's co-defendants on charges of crimes against humanity.
Tuesday's attack in Baghdad was the second assassination of a defense lawyer in the trial in less than three weeks. The latest victim defended Saddam's former vice president, Taha Yassin Ramadan.
Following the attack, Saddam's attorneys called for the trial to be moved to another country. U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan condemned the attacks.
In other violence Tuesday, coalition forces killed two insurgents in Ramadi. Roadside bombs killed two policemen and an Iraqi security official elsewhere in the country.
And al-Qaida in Iraq posted a video on the Internet it says shows the bodies of two U.S. pilots and a helicopter the group says it shot down last week. U.S. officials have not said what caused the crash.
