Supporters Rally In Support Of Khodorkovsky

A court in Moscow has found jailed oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky guilty of embezzlement and money laundering in a trial many said was a test of the country's authoritarian regime. Khodorkovsky was set be released from a first term of imprisonment next year but is now expected to remain behind bars several more years.

Around 1,500 supporters gathered outside the central Moscow court today where the guilty verdict against Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev was read.
