It was God's plan: murder-accused

GEORGE Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watch volunteer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in a case that reignited racial tensions in America, has described the incident as "God's plan".

Mr Zimmerman is charged with murder after shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, in February. He admits killing Trayvon but says he fired in self-defence.

Fox News broadcast an interview with the 28 year-old this week in which he was asked if he regretted leaving his vehicle on the evening in question or regretted carrying a gun.

"No Sir, I feel that it was all God's plan," he said.

Mr Zimmerman once again apologised to Trayvon's parents and said he prayed for them every day.
