Victoria Tkacheva, Russian fiancee of British aid worker Khuram Shaikh, who was murdered while on holiday in Sri Lanka in 2011, arrives with security guards at the Colombo High Court in Colombo March 27, 2014. Six men went on trial in Sri Lanka on Wednesday on charges they murdered Shaikh and gang-raped Tkacheva, following two years of international pressure to prosecute the defendants, who include a member of the country's ruling party. Shaikh, a 32-year-old Red Cross worker based in Gaza, was shot and stabbed to death at a hotel while on holiday in 2011. Tkacheva was beaten unconscious before being sexually assaulted, according to hospital and police records. REUTERS/Dinuka Liyanawatte (SRI LANKA - Tags: POLITICS) less
