A Lebanese journalist and her television station go on trial Thursday in The Hague for allegedly interfering with the work of the UN Special Tribunal for Lebanon investigating the assassination of a former Lebanese prime minister by publishing the names of witnesses. The court says it must protect its ability to work, but the accused and their supporters say the case is an unacceptable attack on freedom of the press. VOA’s Al Pessin reports from London.
