Malaysia divided over opposition leader's trial

Anwar Ibrahim has been in and out of court for about 15 years over sodomy charges after falling out with ruling party.

    The leader of Malaysia's opposition heads back to court on Tuesday to try to clear his name on sodomy charges, which his supporters say are politically motivated.

    The case has been dividing public and political opinion for more than 15 years.
