Embassy bomber sentenced to life in prison
Embassy bomber sentenced to life in prison
Los Angeles Times | January 25, 2011 | 11:00 a.m.

Ahmed Ghailani, convicted in the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa, was sentenced to life in prison today by a federal judge in New York.

Ghailani, a Tanzanian, was captured in Pakistan in 2004 and later interrogated overseas at a secret CIA-run camp. He was moved to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2006 before being transferred to New York for prosecution in 2009.

He is the fifth person to be sentenced for the bombing. Four others were sentenced to life in prison after a 2001 trial in Manhattan federal court. Osama bin Laden is charged in the indictment, as well.
