Kercher murder: Knox, Sollecito acquittals overturned


US student Amanda Knox has said she will fight to clear her name after an Italian court overturned her acquittal for killing Briton Meredith Kercher.

Miss Knox and former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito face a new trial over the 2007 killing in Perugia.

They were freed on appeal in 2011 after four years in jail, but Italy's Supreme Court on Tuesday re-opened the case.

Miss Knox does not have to return from the US for the case, but if found guilty she could face extradition.
