Hanoi, VIET NAM: Vietnamese dissident lawyers Nguyen Van Dai (front-R), 38, and Le Thi Cong Nhan (back-L), 27, are surrounded by police as they face Hanoi's People's Court, 11 May 2007, as pictured via closed-circuit television for local and foreign media and diplomats. The pro-democracy activists, who are charged with spreading propaganda against the communist state and face up to 12 years in prison under Vietnamese law, went on trial in the Vietnamese capital in the latest of a series of court cases against political activists who have challenged the communist government.
