Video raises questions over Florida killing

Police footage casts doubt on self-appointed watchman's claim that he shot black teen in self-defence.

    New video of the man who killed an African-American teenager in the US state of Florida has raised new questions about what happened the night that Trayvon Martin lost his life.

    George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighbourhood watchman, says he shot the 17-year-old Martin in self-defence after the young man attacked him on the street, leaving his face bloodied.

    But the release of a new video shows Zimmerman arriving at the local police station without signs of blood on his face or clothes, as he had claimed.
