A Sudanese woman who is due to appear in court in Khartoum says she faces up to 40 lashes for wearing trousers.

The woman, Lubna Hussein - a former journalist who now works for the United Nations - has invited journalists and observers to the trial.

"I want to change this law, because this law doesn't match in constitution," said Mrs Hussein.

Mrs Hussein describes the moment when she was arrested.
