Mikhail Khodorkovsky gets six more years in Russia jail

Imprisoned former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, once Russia's richest man, has been sentenced to six more years in jail for fraud.

With his current sentence due to expire next year, Khodorkovsky, 47, now faces imprisonment until 2017.

He could "only be reformed by being isolated from society", the judge said.

Daniel Sandford reports.
