The retrial of Amanda Knox over the 2007 murder of British student Meredith Kercher has opened in Italy.
Ms Knox is not in court, as she is exercising her right to stay away.
The retrial began in the central Italian city of Florence on Monday morning, and the first session is expected to discuss procedural issues such as dates for further hearings.
