Man jailed over British teacher Lindsay Hawker murder
A Japanese man has been sentenced to life in prison, for the rape and murder of the British teacher, Lindsay Hawker.
Her body was found in a sand-filled bath at 32-year-old Tatsuya Ichihashi's flat in Tokyo in 2007.
The BBC's Roland Buerk says Miss Hawker's parents nodded with satisfaction as the verdict was read out in the Japanese court room.
