Two men on trial for murder of Hertfordshire businessman

Two men have gone on trial in Kenya for the murder of a Hertfordshire businessman and the abduction of his wife.

Judith Tebbutt from Bishops Stortford was snatched from a remote beach resort near the Somali border last September.

Her husband David was shot dead in the raid by suspected pirates.

Mrs Tebbutt was eventually released in March.

The two men, from East Africa, are facing charges of murder, violent robbery and kidnap.
