Ghislaine Maxwell's sex-trafficking trial to begin in New York City
British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell is due to go on trial in New York City on sex trafficking and other charges.
She is expected to challenge claims she groomed underage girls for convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein for sexual abuse. He died in prison in 2019.
Ms Maxwell, 59, has been in a US jail since her arrest last year, awaiting the high-profile six-week trial.
Ms Maxwell, who also has American and French citizenship, has pleaded not guilty to all the charges against her.
