Saddam Hussein and his co-defendants quietly entered the courtroom on Wednesday for the latest session of their trial.
For the second straight day, the session had a quiet start, a sharp contrast to the outbursts, insults and arguments that characterised past proceedings.
The trial, which began on October 19, appears to have entered a new phase, after chief judge Raouf Abdel-Rahman imposed control on the stormy tribunal.
Prosecutors have been presenting the core of their case: documents they say prove Saddam and his co-defendants led a campaign of arrests, torture and executions in which 148 Shiites died following an alleged 1982 attempt to assassinate Saddam in the town of Dujail.
Prosecutors planned on Wednesday to bring several former regime officials to the witness stand.
Saddam's defence team attended the trial, as they did in Tuesday's session, after ending a boycott that had aimed to remove Abdel-Rahman, who they claimed was biased against the former Iraqi leader.
