Jury chosen for Michael Jackson death trial

The jury has been chosen for the trial of Dr Conrad Murray, the former doctor to the pop star Michael Jackson.

Dr Murray is accused of involuntary manslaughter, and of administering a powerful anaesthetic prior to the singer's death.

The jury consists of a mixture of ethnic backgrounds and professions, including a bus driver and a paralegal. The trial is due to begin on Tuesday.

The BBC's Peter Bowes, in Los Angeles, says there is intense interest in the trial.
