France - Muslim terrorist trial opens

Just as the trial of Muslim terrorists gets underway here in Britain, France starts its own trial.

PARIS, March 20, 2006 (AFP) - The trial of 27 people suspected of planning terrorist attacks in France opened Monday in a Paris court, following one of the country's biggest anti-terrorism investigations in recent years.

They are charged with associating with criminals connected to a terrorist organisation.

Some of the suspects have given statements claiming that attacks were planned against French targets including the Eiffel Tower, police stations and a central Paris shopping centre.

Just as with the BBC there is no mention that they are Muslims.
