Malaya massacre families seek justice

The families of 24 unarmed Malaysian men shot dead by British soldiers in Malaya in 1948 have arrived in the UK for a judicial review hearing into the incident.

At the time British authorities said the men killed were insurgents trying to escape, but relatives of the dead say the Scots Guards carried out an act of cold-blooded mass murder.

Clive Coleman reports.
