Times Square bomb plotter sentenced to life in prison

The man convicted of an attempted car bomb attack in New York's Times Square has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Faisal Shahzad pleaded guilty in June to 10 weapons and terrorism charges.

At his sentencing in Manhattan, Shahzad told the judge "war with the Muslims has just begun", with the US facing "imminent" defeat.
