Bodies of French journalists killed in Mali prepared for return home

Malian and French government officials join former colleagues of two murdered journalists to pay their respects in Bamako. Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon worked for France 24's sister station RFI and were abducted and killed doing their jobs in northern Mali on Saturday. And on the first day of his incitement to murder trial, Egypt's ousted president insists the court has no authority and he is still the rightful leader.
