Rebel trial grips East Timor

Trial of 28 former rebels in East Timor reveals story of betrayal and conspiracy.

    Twenty-eight former rebels have gone on trial in East Timor accused of attempting to assassinate the country's Nobel peace prize winning president, Jose Ramos-Horta.

    Ramos-Horta was shot several times outside his home in the capital Dili in February last year.

    As Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from East Timor, the story has so far revealed a tale of betrayal and conspiracy.
