Pakistan cricketers guilty of betting scam

Pakistan cricketers Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif have been found guilty of their part in a "spot-fixing" scam.

Former captain Butt, 27, and bowler Asif, 28, had denied conspiracy to cheat and conspiracy to accept corrupt payments.

However a jury at London's Southwark Crown Court found Butt guilty of both charges, and Asif guilty of conspiring to cheat.

The BBC's James Pearce reports.
