Man who attacked London Muslims imprisoned for over 40 years
LONDON: A man who drove into worshippers near a London mosque, killing one man and injuring a dozen others, has been sentenced to at least 43 years in prison.
Judge Bobbie Cheema-Grubb said Darren Osborne's mind had been "poisoned" by far-right ideas. She sentenced the 48-year-old on Friday to life with no chance of parole for 43 years.
A jury convicted Osborne of murder and attempted murder on Thursday for the June 2017 attack in London's Finsbury Park neighborhood.
A 51-year-old man, Makram Ali, was killed and 12 people were injured when Osborne drove a rented van into people leaving evening prayers during Ramadan.
Prosecutors said Osborne was motivated by a hatred of Muslims and had been radicalized by online far-right and Islamophobic propaganda.
