Shrien Dewani will face trial, when he is mentally fit, for allegedly arranging the murder of his wife in South Africa.

Anni Dewani, 28, was shot dead in an apparent car hijacking on their honeymoon in Cape Town in November 2010.

A pre-trial hearing of two men accused of the murder was postponed yesterday. The judge said Mr Dewani would be tried when fit. An extradition order was signed last November by the Home Secretary, but the High Court delayed the extradition on mental health grounds.

Mr Dewani denies any involvement in his wife's killing.
