10:08 pm
and his team of 38 men who are very well versed in the countries economy. they're all specialties at their specialists in iran's economy, from various different divisions of the government. they are here to find out what the other side will likely do in terms of moving forward. they're trying to gauge the mood from the europeans as well as the americans. i spoken to sources into iran who are looking at the other parties involved to say that they are seeing some members in the negotiating teams from all sides that are very well versed in terms of the security of the countries. meaning that they, it ladies are expecting iran and other programs, not just a nuclear program will also be brought up. that is, of course, something the renew of said they will not do. and they said they were only here to discuss how the americans will lift their sanctions that they've impose on or on the deputy foreign minister has said they are on nuclear program and other programs
10:09 pm
as well as iran regional involvement is not for negotiations. but to, of course, the parties involved, including europeans, have said that these talks are not going to go on forever, that there needs to be some kind of resolution as soon as possible the trial of british socialite elaine maxwell is beginning in new york. the 59 year old is accused of enabling the crimes of convicted peter fall. jeffrey epstein, who died 2 years ago while awaiting trial maxwell insist she's innocent and denies any wrong doing. let's go live now to gabriel is on the who is following developments there. gabriel, it seems that there was a delay in getting this trial started. what's happened? that's right. it's a little after 2 pm here local time. and since about 930, when the judge came into the court room for the last 5 hours or so, she's been dealing with jury issues that took quite a long time a little longer than expected. they originally had about a pool,
10:10 pm
about $600.00 potential jurors. and over the last couple of weeks that's been whittle down. and they had an extra 50 that they were dealing with here and it just took several hours to finally get the final 12 years. and the 6 alternates that are now seated. it gives you an idea on how complex this trial is going to be, because it's going to go on for about 6 weeks. and the jurors have been admonished by the judge not to follow any social media, not to discuss the trial with anybody. this is common in all trials, but particularly in this trial, that is so high profile that there's been so much media attention about it for so long. not only about elaine maxwell and accusations of sex trafficking against her, but also who loom large over this trial is her long time partner. now deceased, who is jeffrey epstein, who will also cast a big shadow over this trial as well. so it's going to be very complex and
10:11 pm
a lot of drama, potentially in the next 6 weeks that this trial is expected to go on. absolutely. it's got a lot of elements, doesn't money, fame of power, facts. but do we expect the names of other famous friends of maxwell and that scene to be brought up during the proceedings? well, anything's possible in a trial, that's number one. but the judge has said that she will limit any reference to anybody else. and when i say anybody else, that's a, the, the dozens of very famous people that were part of their social circle, several very prominent people, like bill clinton, donald trump, prince andrew, just to name a few. they are not on trial here. the judge made it very clear this trial is about the. busy the alleged crimes committed by delane maxwell and to a lesser degree her relationship with jeffrey epstein. and so it will be very
10:12 pm
interesting if the prosecution tries to bring other names into this trial in some way, shape or form. will the judge allow that? and if she does, how far will she allow the prosecution to probe into the social life or former social life of gain maxwell and jeffrey epstein. this is going to be a key aspect of this trial, but it's important to remember they are not on trial. they just happen to be long time friends of this couple for so many years, but they are not on trial. this is ultimately about dealing maxwell and to a lesser degree. jeffrey epstein. gabriel alexander will be following that trial a for us over the next a few weeks at gabriel. thank you. still ahead here on al jazeera, i live in a life of humiliation. protest. there's block roads in lebanon with no end in sight,
