A Belgian judge walked out of the courtroom Monday after clashing with a lawyer for British soccer fans who were charged with manslaughter in a Brussels stadium riot that killed 39 people. Judge Pierre Verlynden later suspended the trial until today. Lawyers launched an aggressive defense for the 26 Britons charged in connection with the deaths in May, 1985. They disputed the validity of a police video film and sought to call new witnesses.
