Carlos the Jackal handed third life sentence by French court

The notorious Venezuelan, known as Carlos the Jackal, who is serving two life sentences for terror has been handed a third by a French court. The early prototype of a Palestinian terrorist, Ililch Ramirez Sanchez, now 67, studied in Moscow before joining the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. He converted to Islam in 1975. Once the world's most wanted fugitive, he was captured by elite French police in the Sudanese capital Khartoum in 1994. By then, he had masterminded deadly bomb attacks, assassinations and hostage-takings. On trial for throwing a grenade into a shopping area, killing two people and injuring 34, Carlos denounced “scavenging lawyers” and “Zionist interests.”
