A Chinese man has been jailed for a year for stamping on a portrait of Mongol ruler Genghis Khan, after being found guilty of inciting ethnic hatred.

The court in China's Inner Mongolia region was told the man, identified by his surname Luo, had filmed himself trampling on the picture in May.

The 19-year-old then circulated the video clip online, causing public discontent, according to reports.

Genghis Khan remains a revered figure among ethnic Mongols.
