Four get lengthy sentences over Vienna jihadist attack
A Vienna court has handed lengthy sentences, including life in prison, to four of six men accused of helping a jihadist prepare a deadly shooting rampage in 2020.
The 20-year-old attacker, who was shot dead by police within minutes of opening fire, killed four people on November 2, 2020, mowing down crowds as they sat on the terraces of bars and restaurants in central Vienna.
More than 20 people were injured.
While police said the gunman, Kujtim Fejzulai, who held Austrian and North Macedonian nationality, carried out the attack alone, the six defendants were accused of providing help beforehand.
