    Sudan's former President Omar al-Bashir has been found guilty of corruption and sentenced to two years in detention.

    But the 75-year-old will not serve his time in prison, instead, he will be sent to a reform centre for elderly people.

    The trial centred around suitcases filled with more than $130m found in al-Bashir's home.

    Al Jazeera's Hiba Morgan reports from the capital, Khartoum.
