Trial of Bronze Soldier’s supporters resumes in Estonia
An Estonian court has resumed hearing the case against the organisers of protests against the removal of the Bronze Soldier monument.
Violent demonstrations by the Russian-speaking population followed the government's decision to rebury the remains of Soviet soldiers and relocate the memorial to a war cemetery.
Many Russians thought the reburial was a mark of disrespect.
The organisers of the protest have been charged with public unrest which injured a number of policemen and caused major damage in the capital city, Tallinn.
The activists could face up to five years in prison if convicted.
