Al Jazeera to face £1m tribunal

A former Al Jazeera employee is seeking compensation in excess of £1m following her dismissal from the news channel, reports MediaGuardian.

Jo Burgin, the former head of planning at Al Jazeera, is suing the channel for sex, race and religious discrimination.

The trial has been adjourned and will not be heard until at least September because of a mix-up over the availability of a three-person judging panel.
