Malaysian court free Anwar!

Anwar Ibrahim, Malaysia's former deputy prime minister, was freed by the country's highest court, which overturned his conviction for sodomy following an appeal.

The decision, six years to the day that Anwar was sacked from the government, was handed down by the Federal Court in the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya, Malaysia's administrative capital near Kuala Lumpur.
Anwar Ibrahim, 56, had earlier served six years in prison for corruption.
