Philippine senators vote to oust top judge Renato Corona

Senators in the Philippines have found the country's top judge guilty of failing to declare his wealth, paving the way for his removal from office.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona was impeached in the Senate trial as part of an anti-corruption drive by President Benigno Aquino.

A majority of senators found him guilty of not declaring assets worth $2.4m (£1.53m) in his bank accounts.
