    An Indian student has been convicted of hate crimes in America after he used a webcam to spy on his university roommate kissing another man, in a case that caused a national outcry over anti-gay bullying.

    Dharun Ravi encouraged others to watch the feed. He will be sentenced in May.

    The roommate, 18-year-old Tyler Clementi, later committed suicide.
