Conrad Black fraud case returns to court of appeal

Breaking News

A US appeals court has been told to look again at the convictions of Conrad Black - the newspaper tycoon currently serving a prison sentence for fraud.

The US Supreme Court has set aside an earlier ruling upholding Black's convictions, saying that the government had not used the law correctly.

Conrad Black was convicted of defrauding shareholders in Hollinger International in 2007.

He is serving a six-and-a-half-year sentence.
