Knox and Sollecito begin appeal over Kercher's murder

American Amanda Knox made a brief appearance in an Italian court as she began a bid to overturn her conviction for the murder of Meredith Kercher.

Knox, 23, was jailed last year for 26 years for the killing in Perugia in 2007. Her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito was jailed for 25 years.

The hearing lasted just 15 minutes and the case was adjourned until 11 December.

The BBC's Duncan Kennedy said Amanda Knox looked "stressed" while Raffaele Sollecito looked "more relaxed" as they arrived in court.
