London riots: Men guilty of robbing Malaysian student

Two men have been found guilty of robbing a Malaysian student as they pretended to help him during last summer's riots in London.

Ashraf Rossli, 20, had been in the UK for just a month when he was attacked on 8 August in Barking.

As he lay injured, John Kafunda, 22, of Ilford, and Reece Donovan, 24, of Romford, stole items from his bag.

Both were found guilty of robbery and violent disorder at Wood Green Crown Court.

Ben Geoghegan reports.
