BERLIN (Reuters) - A German court sentenced a Vietnamese man on Wednesday to three years and ten months in jail for helping his country's secret services to kidnap a former oil executive from a Berlin street last year and smuggle him back to Vietnam.

The man, identified by German authorities as Long N.H., had last week confessed to the court in Berlin that he had taken part in the Cold War-style abduction of former executive Trinh Xuan Thanh who has since been jailed for life in Vietnam.
