Alluni trial to resume

The trial of Aljazeera's Spain correspondent Taysir Alluni is to resume in Madrid on Wednesday.

    Alluni has denied charges of having links with al-Qaida

    The court will hear testimonies from several people in the case in which Alluni is accused of being a member of a group in Spain belonging to al-Qaida.

     

    The charge was denied by the correspondent during a previous hearing session.

     

    He was released from prison and returned to his Granada home in March after serving 119 days in solitary confinement.

     

    Syrian-born Alluni, a Spanish citizen, was first arrested in 2003 on suspicion of links with al-Qaida as part of an investigation into suspected Islamist operations in Spain.

     

    He was then released due to chronic back problems and heart ailments but re-arrested in December 2004 when Spanish authorities feared he might flee the country.

     

    The minutes of the trial will be broadcast on Aljazeera Mubashir (Live) at 5.30pm Makka time.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
