A Swedish court has sentenced a man to life in prison for a truck attack in Stockholm in 2017
A Swedish court has sentenced a failed Uzbek asylum seeker to life in prison.
Rakhmat Akilov killed five people and injured another 10 when he slammed a stolen truck into shoppers on a busy street in Stockholm in April last year.
Those killed included an 11-year-old girl.
He was arrested the same day as the attack outside a gas station in a Stockholm suburb after he was recognised from a CCTV image and quickly admitted to being the driver of the truck.
During the trial, he told the judge he wanted to punish Sweden for joining a coalition against the so-called Islamic State group.
