Malaysian court to rule on Anwar sodomy trial

Opposition leader tries to rally public support against what he calls a government plot.

    A Malaysian court is expected on Monday to decide whether or not opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim is guilty of sodomy in a case that has transfixed the nation.

    Prior to the verdict, Anwar has campaigned for public support. He says the trial, the second time he has faced such charges in court, is part of a government plot against him.
