Sir Peter Blake Shooting Trial Begins

The man accused of shooting yachtsman Sir Peter Blake dead has gone on trial in Brazil. Ricardo Colares was one of six men charged with murder over Sir Peter's death a fortnight ago.

The six appeared before a judge in the Amazon port town of Macapa, at the mouth of the Amazon river, where Sir Peter's boat, Seamaster, was moored when its crew were robbed and Sir Peter killed.

The judge will decide the verdict, as the Brazilian judicial system does not have juries.
