Saddam Hussein's trial was quickly reduced to chaos after its resumption Sunday, as one co-defendant was dragged out of the courtroom, then a defense lawyer was ejected, and finally the former Iraqi leader himself was removed after shouting, "Down with the traitors!" and demanding to leave. The new chief judge in the trial, Raouf Abdel-Rahman, had sought to demonstrate tough control over the court, but the session - the first in a month - began to fall apart quickly. After the defense lawyer was removed, the entire defense team walked out as the judge shouted after them, "Any lawyer who walks out will not be allowed back into this courtroom."
