US Batman cinema attack: Suspect 'unresponsive, absent'

The US man accused of killing 12 people in a shooting at a Batman film screening in Aurora, Colorado has appeared in court for the first time.

James Holmes, 24, sat in court in a red jail suit with dyed orange hair, and appeared sleepy during the proceedings.

The BBC's Adam Brooks said that he seemed "absent, almost in a world of his own".
