Samsung makes price-fixing plea
Electronics giant Samsung has formally pleaded guilty to involvement in price-fixing in the US.

Samsung was accused of conspiring with other chipmakers to fix the price of chips sold for use in PCs and mobile phones between 1999 and 2002.

The South Korean firm's US arm agreed to plead guilty last month and pay a $300m (170m) fine, the second largest criminal anti-trust penalty on record.

Samsung has also agreed to co-operate with the authorities in the case.
