‘Carlos the Jackal’ in Paris court

http://www.euronews.net/ One of the world’s most notorious terrorists, Carlos the Jackal, has arrived in court in Paris for the start of his trial.

Born Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, the Venezuelan – already serving a life sentence after his capture nearly two decades ago – faces charges he was behind a series of urban bombings in France in the early 1980’s. Eleven people were killed, more than 100 injured.

He is expected to plead not guilty before a seven-judge terrorism panel. “I am really in a combative mood,” he told Europe 1 radio in an interview.
