Ibrahim Anwar appeal: Malaysia's top court upholds sodomy verdict

Malaysia's top court has upheld opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim's conviction for sodomy after rejecting his appeal.

He has now been taken to prison to serve the five-year term that he was given in March 2014.

It will be Mr Anwar's second spell in jail on charges which he has always argued have been politically motivated.
