PUBLISHED March 2, 2012

Mobile phone footage of Ashraf Rossli being attacked during last August's riots in London caused widespread outrage.

Today, a jury at Wood Green Crown Court has convicted John Kafunda 22, of robbery and violent disorder.

Kafunda, of Eastwood Road in Ilford, was captured on camera putting his arm round Mr Rossli and pretending to protect him.

Reece Donovan, 22, of Cross Road, Romford was caught on camera rifling through the accountancy student's bag while the victim's back was to him. He was convicted of theft, violent disorder and later burgling a Tesco store.
