Air India terrorist bombing perjury trial begins

The prosecution lawyer in the perjury trial for the only person convicted in the 1985 Air India bombing that killed 329 people off the coast of Ireland says the defendant lied repeatedly during his testimony at the trial of two men charged with mass murder.
Inderjit Singh Reyat was charged with perjury in 2006.
Lawyer Len Doust told jurors Thursday in his opening statement Reyat already pleaded guilty to supplying bomb parts in one of two bombings in 1985.
Reyat is accused of lying during the trial of Ajaib Singh Bagri and Ripudaman Singh Malik in September 2003.
They were acquitted in 2005 in the airline bombing and an explosion the same day at Tokyo's Narita Airport that killed two baggage handlers.
