Trial begins of Ethiopian opposition leaders

Trial began Thursday for 129 opposition leaders, journalists and aid workers in Ethiopia, and all but three of them refused to enter pleas because they believe charges against them were fabricated and they will not get a fair hearing.

During Thursday's proceedings, some of the accused held their hands over their mouths in an act of protest at being banned by the judge from making statements regarding the ongoing trial.
