The conviction of US student Amanda Knox for murdering her British roommate Meredith Kercher in Italy has polarised opinion across three countries.
Knox has been labelled as a ‘luciferina’ or 'she-devil' in court, and vilified by some parts of the media, but her friends and family have always strenuously protested her innocence.
Now, with a decision due next month on her appeal, Italian justice itself is on trial.
Amos Roberts reports from Perugia on the questions around the entire sequence of events that led to Knox’s conviction.
How did police initially get a confession from her? Did detectives botch the forensic evidence? And did Knox’s defence team fail in their role to defend her in court?
