Protesters set to face second trial.

THE trial of five anti-war protesters charged with damaging a US aircraft collapsed yesterday.

But Judge Frank O'Donnell told Dublin Circuit Criminal Court there would be another trial following legal arguments in the absence of the jury.

On day six of the trial the judge said he was not going into the reasons for its dismissal because there will be another hearing.

He added: "We're here to ensure the accused get a fair trial."

The five accused are student priest Damien Moran, Australian Ciaran O'Reilly, Scottish marine biologist Karen Fallon, Nuin Dunlop, a counsellor from the US, and journalist Deirdre Clancy.

They are all pleading not guilty to damaging a US naval plane and two glass door panels at Aer Rianta at Shannon Airport on February 3, 2003.
