A Moscow court on Monday found jailed tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky guilty in his second trial on charges of embezzlement, Russian news agencies reported.

The court found Khodorkovsky and his co-accused Platon Lebedev guilty of embezzlement, the ITAR-TASS news agency reported. They had been charged with embezzling 218 million tonnes of oil.

Only a handful of reporters were allowed into the courtroom for the verdict and judge Viktor Danilkin then requested even those journalists to leave as the rest of the verdict was read out.
