    A furious father of a sexual assault victim tried to attack Larry Nassar in a courtroom after the judge denied him five minutes in a locked room with former doctor of the USA gymnastics team.

    The father apologised afterwards.

    A chief of police also apologised to one of the gymnasts who reported Larry Nassar to him 11 years before Nasser was fired.

    Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports.
