Abdeslam sentenced to life in jail for role in 2015 Paris attacks - court

·1 min read

PARIS, June 29 (Reuters) - A criminal court on Wednesday imposed a lifetime prison sentence without any possibility of parole on Salah Abdeslam, the only surviving member of the group that killed 130 in Paris in a gun-and-bomb assault on Nov. 13, 2015.

The sentence is the most rigorous in France, where the death penalty was abolished in 1981. It means that Abdeslam, 32, will spend the rest of his life in jail.

During a hearing in September, the Belgium-born Frenchman told the Paris court: "I gave up my job to become an Islamic State soldier." (Reporting by Tangi Salaün, writing by Tassilo Hummel, editing by Ingrid Melander)
