France sentences Equatorial Guinea VP Teodorin Obiang

A French court has handed down a three-year suspended jail term to Equatorial Guinea's Vice President, Teodorin Obiang for corruption. The 48-year-old, known for his lavish tastes, is the son of the oil-rich West African country's president.

He was absent from the trial, where he was found guilty of embezzlement.

His assets in France will be seized, including a mansion on Avenue Foch in Paris. He also got a suspended fine of 30m euros (£27m; $35m).
