Amanda Knox (L), the U.S. student convicted of murdering her British flatmate Meredith Kercher in Italy in November 2007, leaves the court during her appeal trial session in Perugia September 26, 2011. Knox is appealing against a 26-year jail term imposed after she was found guilty of murdering Kercher with the help of her Italian boyfriend and another man during a drug-fuelled orgy. Prosecutors have asked the appeals court to extend her sentence to life in jail.
