Leaving Shul during the reading of Kerias Hatorah

Leaving Shul:[1]

It is forbidden to leave the Shul [once] the Sefer Torah is opened [until the completion of the reading, even if there are another ten people in Shul and he already heard the reading]. [In a time of great need[2], however], one may leave in-between Aliyos.
