The only surviving attacker from the 2015 massacre at the Bataclan theatre and other sites in Paris has been convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
That is the most severe sentence possible in France, and very rare.
Presiding Judge Jean-Louis Peries read the verdict on Wednesday in a courthouse surrounded by unprecedented security, wrapping up an exceptional, nine-month trial.
The chief suspect and sole surviving attacker, 32-year-old Salah Abdeslam, was found guilty of murder and attempted murder in relation to a “terrorist” enterprise, among other charges.
