Lawrence case: 'Significant of its generation'
Two men have been convicted of the racist murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence, 18 years after he was stabbed to death near a south London bus stop.
Gary Dobson and David Norris were found guilty by an Old Bailey jury after a trial based on forensic evidence.
Speaking following the verdict, Alison Saunders, chief Crown prosecutor for London, said it was one of the most significant cases of its generation.
She said: "It should be remembered that 18 years ago, a young man lost his life."
She added that she hopes that these convictions offer justice to Stephen Lawrence's family and friends.
