What this team should find as they begin preparing the case against Saddam.
The United States is sending a 50-strong team of lawyers, prosecutors and investigators to Iraq to prepare for the war- crimes trial of Saddam Hussein that could start this summer.

The group's main task will be to organise the accumulated, but still disparate, evidence of the former Iraqi president's atrocities into a report. This will probably serve as the basis for the case against the former dictator to be presented by Iraqi prosecutors in what American officials insist will be an Iraqi-run trial.
