Bo Xilai calls wife 'mad' after court hears her testimony

One of China's biggest political trials for decades has heard details about a dispute between the wife of one of the country's former leaders and the British businessman she murdered.

The evidence has emerged on the second day of the trial of Bo Xilai, the former Chongqing Communist Party chief. He is accused of bribery, corruption and abuse of power.

His wife Gu Kailai gave testimony at his trial but he wants it dismissed saying "she's changed, she's gone mad, she always tells lies".

John Sudworth reports from the court in Jinan.
