Kercher murder: New appeal verdicts to be announced

An appeal court in Italy is expected to give its verdict in the case of a British student, Meredith Kercher, who was killed in Perugia in 2007.

Ms Kercher's American flatmate, Amanda Knox and Ms Knox's then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were convicted of the crime, but later acquitted.

Their acquittal was later declared unsound by Italy's highest court.

The BBC's Alan Johnston reports from the courthouse in Florence where new appeal verdicts will be announced.
