Oscar board expels Havey Weinstein from Motion Picture Academy

Film mogul Harvey Weinstein has been ousted from the organisation which hands out the Oscars.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences says over two-thirds of its board has voted to reject him. The decision was announced after an emergency meeting on Saturday.

Weinstein is accused of rape and sexual harassment by more than two dozen women, including actresses Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.
