Amanda Knox wins right to review forensic evidence

Amanda Knox has been granted a review of the forensic evidence used to convict her of the murder of student Meredith Kercher.

The 23-year-old American is trying to overturn her conviction after being jailed last year for 26 years for the killing in Perugia, Italy, in 2007.

Miss Kercher, 21, from Coulsdon, south London, was found with her throat cut.

The review will include the disputed DNA evidence found on a knife and on the clasp of Miss Kercher's bra.

Christian Fraser reports from Rome.
