Egypt trial against American pro-democracy workers opens

The trial begins in Cairo with none of the accused American pro-democracy workers appearing in court. The U.S. and Egypt have struggled to resolve the crisis.

The criminal trial of 16 American pro-democracy workers opened in Cairo on Sunday as U.S. and Egyptian diplomats attempted to resolve a deepening crisis between longtime allies that have grown increasingly estranged since the uprisings that have swept the Arab world in the last year.
