US film producer Harvey Weinstein charged with rape, sexual assault

US film producer Harvey Weinstein has appeared in court in Manhattan to face charges of rape and sexual assault.
 
He has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 80 women, but faces charges related to only two.
 
The movie mogul has admitted that he has "caused a lot of pain" but said all of his relationships were consensual.
 
Outside court, some of his accusers including actresses Rosanna Arquette and Rose McGowan demanded he be held accountable.
 
Mr Weinstein, who was once one of Hollywood's most powerful producers, faces five charges including rape and sexual assault, and could be jailed for life if convicted.
 
Jury selection began today, with the trial expected to begin properly in two weeks.
