Bahrain military court resumes trials

More than 30 people charged with 'illegal activities'.

    More than 30 people have faced hearings in Bahraini military courts where they have been charged by the government with carrying out "illegal activities" during weeks of anti-regime protests.

    Family members of two men charged told reporters that their lawyers were not even informed their clients were to appear in court on Sunday.

    Human rights groups and lawyers say the trials are a farce.

    Charles Stratford has the story.
