Trayvon Martin: Gun And Drug Texts Released

Photos and texts taken from Trayvon Martin's mobile phone have been released by lawyers for the man charged with shooting dead the 17-year-old last year in Florida.

They include conversations with a friend about fighting, smoking pot and being forced to move out of his mother’s house because of trouble at school, as well as images of a gun and what looks to be a potted marijuana plant.

A hearing next week is due to decide if the information can be used at the murder trial for Sanford neighbourhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
