Russia finds Magnitsky posthumously guilty of fraud

The late Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky has been found guilty of tax fraud by a Moscow court.

Magnitsky was arrested in 2008 after accusing officials of tax fraud, but was later himself accused of the crime.

His death in custody a year later led to a major diplomatic dispute between Russia and the United States.

Steven Rosenberg reports from Moscow.
