French footballers trial adjourned on point of law
Paris: The trial of Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema for having sex with an underage prostitute was adjourned shortly after opening on Tuesday pending resolution of a point of law which may result in the charges being dropped.

Lawyers for the two French football stars have challenged the legal basis for the charges against their clients and the judge agreed that they had raised a legitimate issue which will have to be resolved by another court before the trial can continue.
