News Correspondent

In the US, three white men have gone on trial today for the murder of the young Black man Ahmaud Arbery.

He was out jogging when he was chased through a suburban neighbourhood in Georgia, then shot and killed.

The men have pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, aggravated assault and false imprisonment.

Their lawyers are expected to argue they were attempting a legal citizen’s arrest. The trial is already drawing criticism for its almost entirely white jury.
