5 French execs in breast implant scandal on trial

Jean-Claude Mas, who founded and ran implant-maker Poly Implant Prothese, arrives at the Parc Chanot temporary courthouse in Marseille, southern France, for the opening of his trial, Wednesday, April 17, 2013. Hundreds of women who received faulty breast implants are gathering in the south of France to witness the fraud trial of five executives accused of using cheap industrial silicone to fill tens of thousands of implants around the world. The now-defunct company exported to more than 60 countries and was one of the world's leading implant makers. (AP Photo/Claude Paris)
