The man accused of the Arizona shooting attack that killed six people and wounded 13, including a US congresswoman, has pleaded not guilty to three attempted murder charges.

Jared Loughner, 22, entered the pleas over the attempted assassination of Representative Gabrielle Giffords and two aides.

Ms Giffords, who was shot in the head, is at a rehabilitation centre in Texas.

State charges in the six deaths and other injuries are expected to follow. The BBC's Rajesh Mirchandani reports from Los Angeles.
