In the US, two investigations are underway into the death of multimillionaire financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

He was found dead in his cell in New York yesterday in what authorities describe as an apparent suicide.

The 66-year-old was to be tried on sex trafficking charges involving dozens of under-aged girls. RNZ's New York correspondent Nick Harper speaks to Susie Ferguson.
