Bollywood star Salman Khan
has been charged with culpable
homicide by a court in the Indian
city of Mumbai for a hit-and-run
incident ten years ago.
The actor pleaded not guilty. If
convicted, he faces ten years in
prison. The trial will begin on
In September 2002, he allegedly
drove his car into a bakery in
Mumbai, killing a man sleeping
on the street.
So far, he has been tried for the
lesser offence of "death caused by
Khan is one of Bollywood s
biggest stars and has starred in
more than 80 Hindi-language
films, including Dabangg, Ready,
Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger, Maine
Pyar Kiya and Hum Aap Ke Hain
Late on the night of September
28, 2002, Khan s Toyota Land
Cruiser rammed into the American
Express bakery in the Bandra area
of Mumbai, authorities say.
The vehicle ran over five people
sleeping on the streets, killing 38-
year-old Noor Ullah Khan and
seriously injuring three others.
Another person received minor
injuries. The judge exempted the
actor from being present in court
during the trial, although he will
have to appear if asked.
Khan was initially charged with
culpable homicide. But he suc-
cessfully challenged that charge in
court and it was reduced to "caus-
ing death by negligence".
In February this year, the court
ruled that the actor could be tried
for the more serious charge of
"culpable homicide not amounting
Khan challenged the ruling in
the Bombay High Court, which
rejected his petition last month.
There have been several com-
plaints about delays to the trial,
the case has stretched on for more
than a decade. Mumbai police deny
causing deliberate delays.---BBC
Actor Salman Khan
charged with homicide Eleven members of a breakaway
Catholic group have been arrested
in Rwanda after they tried to deliver
a "vision from Virgin Mary" to Pres-
ident Paul Kagame, urging him to
The group had staged an illegal
protest outside the presidential res-
idence in the capital, Kigali, police
Protests outside Mr Kagame s home
are extremely rare, correspondents
say.The opposition accuses him of run-
ning an authoritarian regime since
he took power in 1994.
However, his supporters and West-
ern governments credit him with end-
ing a genocide that killed some
800,000 people before his rebel forces
seized power in Rwanda.
Those who were arrested came
from the little known Intwarane
group, which is not recognised by the
official Roman Catholic church.
Police chief Emmanuel Gasana said
the group was arrested as it was head-
ing towards Mr Kagame s home in
Kigali s wealthy suburb of Kiyovu.---
At least three prisoners have been
killed during a riot in the main
prison in Ivory Coast s biggest city
of Abidjan, officials say.
One of the prisoners told the BBC
that the riot began after the authorities
tried to relocate a prisoner they sus-
pected of planning to escape.
The BBC s Tamasin Ford says nego-
tiations are ongoing and heavily armed
soldiers have arrived.
The Maca prison holds some of
Ivory Coast s most violent prisoners.
It is also used to detain some sup-
porters of former President Laurent
The prisoner said that cells had
been set on fire before guards were
sent in to restore order.
One guard was severely beaten and
"left for dead" after being overpow-
ered, before reinforcements used live
bullets, he said.
"It was a mutiny at the prison that
was quickly put down in order to keep
it from getting out of control. There
were three deaths," Lieutenant Moussa
Doumbia, head of the unit sent to
put down the uprising, told Reuters
But our reporter says the situation
has not been totally resolved and sol-
diers with rocket-propelled grenades
have been deployed outside the prison.
Gbagbo refused to accept defeat in
2010 elections and was ousted the
following year, with the help of French
and UN forces backing President
"We fear the authorities will use
this against pro-Gbagbo detainees,"
the prisoner told the BBC.---BBC
