Eleven Branch Davidians still devoted to the doomsday prophet David Koresh went on trial for the killings of four federal agents during a raid on the religious group's compound, AP reports from San Antonio.

The trial, moved to San Antonio because of wide publicity in Waco, began with jury selection. It is expected to last two months. Six of the 11 defendants are foreign-born, including three Britons, an Australian, a Jamaican and a Canadian.
