Shrien Dewani murder case thrown out by South African judge

British businessman Shrien Dewani has been cleared of murdering his wife during their South Africa honeymoon, after the judge threw out the case.

Judge Jeanette Traverso said the evidence presented by the prosecution fell "far below the threshold" of what a reasonable court could convict on.

She said the evidence of the prosecution's main witness was "riddled with contradictions".

Anni's family said they had been failed by the justice system.
