Saddam's Lawyer Killed in Iraq

From Yahoo!News:

Gunmen killed a second defense lawyer in the trial of Saddam Hussein and his aides on Tuesday and the former Iraqi president's own counsel demanded the court be moved abroad, out of reach of the U.S.-backed government.

Was that random violence, or were Saddam's lawyers targets? If so, to what end were they killed? It seems to me very unlikely that Saddam's lawyers were going to get him off. Maybe Saddam supporters killed his lawyers so that Saddam can argue that there is no way for him to get a fair trial?

Weird stuff.
