Riots: Pair guilty of stealing from Malaysian student

Two men have been found guilty of stealing from a Malaysian student as they pretended to help him during last summer's riots in London.

Ashraf Rossli, 20, had been in Britain for just a month when he was attacked on 8 August in Barking.

As he lay injured, John Kafunda, 22, of Ilford, and Reece Donovan, 24, of Romford, stole items from his bag.

Kafunda was found guilty of robbery while Donovan was convicted of theft at Wood Green Crown Court.

They were also found guilty of violent disorder.

Ben Geoghegan reports from Wood Green Crown Court.
