Trial due to start in Russia of lawyer who died in police custody


The controversial trial of the lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who died in police custody, is due to begin in Moscow next week.

Mr Magnitsky was arrested in 2008 after accusing officials of tax fraud but was later himself accused of those crimes.

His death has led to a diplomatic dispute between Russia and the United States.
