The trial of a man accused of attacking Elie Wiesel set to begin





The trial of a New Jersey man accused of attacking Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel (EL'-ee vee-ZEHL') in a San Francisco hotel is set to begin today.

Eric Hunt is charged with attempted kidnapping, false imprisonment, battery and elder abuse charges for allegedly accosting Wiesel on an elevator at the Argent Hotel in February of last year.

Shortly after the incident, Wiesel told police that Hunt had asked him for an interview, then dragged him off an elevator.

Hunt has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
