Cecil lion hunt guide: Charges are frivolous and wrong

The Zimbabwean hunter who led the expedition that killed Cecil the lion has appeared in court.

Theo Bronkhorst, who runs a safari company, will stand trial on September 28 on charges of organising an illegal hunt.

Bronkhorst denies any wrongdoing over the hunt in July, when US dentist Walter Palmer paid to shoot Cecil with a bow and arrow.

On Wednesday he said the case against him was "frivolous" and "wrong".
