Disgraced US financier Bernard Madoff has been jailed after pleading guilty to all 11 charges surrounding an estimated $50bn (£35bn) fraud.
Some of his victims clapped when he was handcuffed and led out of a New York courtroom. He had earlier said he was "deeply sorry and ashamed".
The 70-year-old defrauded thousands of investors in a fraud he admitted had been running since the early 1990s.
He could receive up to 150 years when he is sentenced in June.
