Anwar sodomy conviction: Family seeks pardon

The family of jailed Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim say they have sought a royal pardon over his conviction for sodomy.

Anwar was jailed for five years ago in a case which he has always maintained was brought to keep him out of politics.

Speaking to BBC News, Anwar Ibrahim's daughter, Nurul Izzah, said the family would "exhaust all legal avenues" over what they see as a miscarriage of justice.
