Pakistan PM found guilty of contempt

Help

Pakistan's Supreme Court has found Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani guilty in a contempt of court case.

However, Mr Gilani was only given a symbolic sentence by the court and will not have to serve any time in jail.

Mr Gilani had denied that he had been in contempt for failing to reopen corruption cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.
