Closing arguments heard in Amanda Knox case

An Italian court is hearing closing arguments in an appeal by the American student, Amanda Knox, against her conviction for the murder of her British flatmate.

Knox and her former Italian boyfriend were given lengthy jail sentences for killing Meredith Kercher in 2007. An independent report has cast doubt on DNA evidence used to secure the convictions.

The BBC's Daniel Sandford spoke to Amanda Knox's mother regarding comments that Meredith Kercher had been forgotten in the process.

Edda Mellas told him she agreed that Miss Kercher had been forgotten but, while she was the first victim, her daughter Amanda and Raffaele Sollecito were the second victims.
