Nigeria sentences man to life prison for 2010 car bombing


ABUJA: A Nigerian court on Wednesday sentenced the brother of a suspected militant leader to life imprisonment for treason for his involvement in twin car bombings in the capital, Abuja, in 2010. The blasts, which killed at least 10 people near an independence day parade, were claimed by the Movement of the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), formerly the main militant group in Nigeria's southern oil heartland before it reached a peace agreement with the government.
