Italian court says Knox murder acquittal had inconsistencies

ROME (Reuters) - Italy's top court said on Tuesday it had ordered a re-run of the Meredith Kercher murder trial because the acquittal of American Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend contained "shortcomings, contradictions and inconsistencies".

Knox and Italian Raffaele Sollecito were initially found guilty of killing the 21-year-old Leeds University student in 2007 during a drug-fuelled sexual assault, but both were cleared on appeal in 2011.
