The trial of Saddam Hussein and seven co-defendants was adjourned yesterday until July 24.

The proceedings have not been helped by the absence of Saddam's lawyers, who have boycotted the past two days of proceedings.

Presiding Judge Raouf Rasheed Abdel-Rahman has named substitute lawyers, and warned that they would make the defendants' final arguments if the original lawyers don't bother to show up.
