Ten suspected radical Islamists have gone on trial in Paris, accused of taking part in a failed plot to bomb a market in eastern France in 2000. The so-called “Frankfurt group”, all Algerian or French-Algerian, are accused of criminal conspiracy to attack a Strasbourg Christmas market. They each face up to 10 years in jail if found guilty.

One of the men is being tried in absentia, as he is currently being held for questioning in a British jail.Full Story
