The man who set off pressure cooker bombs in New York and New Jersey in 2016 has been sentenced to life.
Ahmad Khan Rahimi injured 30 people when he set off a bomb in Manhattan. The Afghan-born US citizen, who was captured after a shootout with police, told the court that he does not "harbour hate for anyone".
According to federal prosecutors, the 30-year-old has not shown remorse and has attempted to radicalise others in prison to support Islamic State. They said that Rahimi had tried to influence his fellow inmates with terrorist propaganda, including speeches from deceased al-Qaeda leaders Anwar al-Awlaki and Osama bin Laden.
Rahimi, known to many as the "Chelsea bomber", was convicted in 2017 October on all eight counts brought against him in court, including the use of a weapon of mass destruction and bombing a public place.
The sentence of multiple life terms means Rahimi is likely to never leave jail.

sentenced to life . . . or until the next democrat president.
I hope they keep him in solitary for his whole wretched life.
No someone will murder him.
Just hang the SOB, geez. Keeping this viral monster alive is not merciful, it’s stupid.
The Taqiyya is strong with this one.
Every time one of these pigdog murder-muzzies escapes the death penalty, it is a loss for civilization.

Life in prison? It’s New York; they’ll let him have parole in under 10 years.
What he needs it to be put through a wood chipper, feet first.
Me: Oh, just f-ing execute him.
Wusses: Oh, no! Then he’d just be a martyr!
Me: They already hate us! What, do you think they will hate us more?
A travesty of Justice. He should be executed.
He should be put in a giant pressure cooker with a slab of bacon and cooked until thoroughly done....then fed to the dogs.
Hopefully no windows to direct his prayers maybe a painted yellow arrowhead pointed to the White House instead of the Kabba.
What an absolute waste of taxpayers’ funds. How much does a .223 LR cost?
