U.S. bomber gets life in prison for 1998 blast


Convicted Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Monday for the 1998 bombing of an Alabama abortion clinic, which killed a police officer and maimed a nurse.

The 38-year-old abortion foe pleaded guilty in April to the clinic bombing in a federal plea bargain that spared him the death penalty. As part of the same deal, Rudolph confessed to the 1996 bombing of the Summer Olympics in Atlanta and blasts at an abortion clinic and gay bar in and around the Georgia capital.

He will be sentenced to life in prison without parole on Aug. 22 for the Atlanta attacks, which killed one person and injured more than 100 others.
