Amanda Knox addresses Italian court over Kercher murder

Amanda Knox, who is accused of murdering British student Meredith Kercher, has told a court she does not want to be branded an assassin.

Her voice trembled as she addressed the jury in Italy that is expected to deliver its verdict later this week.

Speaking in Italian she said: "The first thing to say is that I am not calm. I am afraid of being defined as something I am not and by actions that are not mine."
