Saif al-Islam Gaddafi: Inside courtroom after verdict

A court in Libya has sentenced Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of deposed leader Col Muammar Gaddafi, and eight others to death over war crimes linked to the 2011 revolution.

More than 30 close associates of Col Gaddafi were tried for suppressing peaceful protests during the uprising.

The BBC's John Simpson witnessed events in court and said it was "an extraordinary and chaotic end to a long trial".
