A US judge has sentenced British cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri to life in prison over his terrorism-related charges, Press TV reported.
US District Judge Katherine Forrest sentenced Abu Hamza, whose real name is Mustafa Kemal Mustafa, on Friday, saying he was found guilty of the deadly kidnapping of Western tourists in Yemen and supporting terrorism.
"You have not expressed sympathy or remorse," Forrest told Abu Hamza. She added that only life in prison would make sure he could never endanger innocent people again.
In 1998, 16 Western tourists were kidnapped in Yemen, four of whom were killed.
Last May, jurors found Hamza guilty of advising the kidnapers and providing them with a satellite phone.
He was also convicted of sending two people to set up a militant training camp in Oregon in 1999, and sending an associate to Afghanistan to assist al-Qaeda and the Taliban.
Hamza denied sending anyone to Oregon or Afghanistan, and claimed he had only an intermediary role in the Yemen kidnapping.
Before being extradited to the US in 2012, Abu Hamza spent eight years in a UK prison for inciting violence, after being arrested by UK police in 2004.
