World Trade Centre bomber gets life with no parole

A U.S. judge has sentenced Ramzi Yousef, the man convicted of the 1993 World Trade Centre bombing, to life in prison with no chance of parole.

The judge said he wants Yousef to serve his sentence in solitary confinement.

The bombing of the Trade Centre's twin towers five years ago killed six people and injured more than a thousand others.

To preclude Yousef profiting from selling his story, the judge ordered him to pay a quarter of a billion dollars in restitution.
