Yemen assassination trial criticised

Rights groups say trial of five men accused of trying to kill ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh is unlawful.

    The trial is under way of five men accused of trying to assassinate Yemen's former president.

    Their lawyers insist they had nothing to do with the attempt on Ali Abdullah Saleh's life in June 2011.

    And local rights organisations insist the trial is unlawful.
