130-plus news organisations to cover Amanda Knox trial


More than 130 newspapers and television stations from around the world have applied for press passes to the trial of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito.

The trial of the pair – accused of killing Meredith Kercher, 21, from Surrey – begins in Perugia on Friday.

However, as The Observer reports, the journalists may have a wasted trip.

The judge will decide on Friday whether the media should be admitted, after Kercher’s family requested they were not.

Sollecito, though, hasn’t avoided the media glare – he has written a regular column for his hometown newspaper in Bari from his cell.
