A British teenager will go on trial next year accused of throwing a six-year-old French boy from a viewing platform at London's Tate Modern gallery. The 17-year-old, who wore a blue T-shirt at a short hearing in London's Old Bailey Court, was remanded to youth detention accommodation. He is accused of attempted murder.

He is due to enter a plea on Nov. 7 and his defense lawyer said they would obtain a psychiatric report before then. His trial was set for Feb. 3 next year. The judge Nicholas Hilliard made an order that neither the teenager nor the boy could be identified.
