PARIS (Reuters) - British designer John Galliano will go on trial over accusations he made racist insults, the French public prosecutor's office said on Wednesday.

Galliano, sacked this week by Christian Dior, will go before a court in the second quarter of 2011, the prosecutor's office said in a statement.
