    Background: Six people - -believed to have close links with Israel -- went on trial in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, on Monday (January 7) on charges connected with the murder of a young Moroccan.

    The four men and two women pleaded not guilty to charges of spying for Israel, and complicity in the murder of 30-year-old Ahmed Bouchiki -- an alleged member of the Black September guerrilla movement.

    Bouchiki was shot dad in July last year in the holiday resort of Li???ehammer where he had been working as a waiter.

    The six defendants have been in custody for nearly six months while Norwegian police and Interpol continued their investigations. The two men believed to have fired the bullets that killed Bouchiki are still at large.

    The prosecution has alleged that the six were members of a group of eleven men and four women co-operating in a plan to kill a leader of the Black September movement.

    The indictment specifically accuses the six of collecting information for the State of Israel "injurious to Norwegian interests".

    The Norwegian Foreign Ministry has said that any proven link between Israel and the convicted killers of Ahmed Bouchiki would be considered "a very serious matter."
