Michael Jackson wrongful death trial set to begin

A civil trial in which Michael Jackson's family is suing concert promoters AEG is due to begin

Jackson's family is suing AEG for wrongful death, claiming the company was responsible for the star's death in 2009 because it hired Dr Conrad Murray.

Dr Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011.

A jury of six men and six women has been selected for the Los Angeles trial, which may last up to six months.

Alastair Leithead reports from Los Angeles.
