Aaron Swartz Family Blame Prosecutors For Death

The family of internet activist and programming whizz-kid Aaron Swartz who committed suicide aged 26 have said they blame prosecutors for his death.

Mr Swartz killed himself in his Brooklyn apartment weeks before he was to go on trial on accusations that he stole millions of journal articles from an electronic archive in an attempt to make them freely available.

If convicted, he faced decades in prison and a fortune in fines.
