A lawyer representing a former Iraqi vice president on trial along with Saddam Hussein was assassinated Tuesday in western Baghdad, a colleague on the defense team said. Adel al-Zubeidi, who represented defendant Taha Yassin Ramadan, was killed and another lawyer was injured in an ambush in the Adil neighborhood, according to lawyer Khamis al-Obeidi. Last month, Saadoun al-Janabi, lawyer for co-defendant Awad al-Bandar, was abducted from his office by 10 masked gunmen. His body was found hours later on a sidewalk near a mosque in eastern Baghdad.
