Iceland parliament vote sends former PM to court

Iceland's former Prime Minister Geir Haarde has been referred to a special court, in a move that could make him the first world leader to be charged in connection with the global financial crisis.

The Icelandic parliament narrowly voted to begin the procedure, which will decide whether Mr Haarde should be charged with alleged negligence.
