Video: Man guilty over soldier comments on Facebook

A man who posted a Facebook message following the deaths of six British troops which said "all soldiers should die and go to hell" has been found guilty of sending a grossly offensive communication.

Azhar Ahmed admitted posting the message in March but told Huddersfield Magistrates Court he thought it was distressing but not offensive. The judge said the remarks were "derogatory, disrespectful and inflammatory".
