Somali torturer gets life (3)

Found guilty of murder and violence in Libya camp

(ANSA) - Milan, October 10 - A Somali man who killed, tortured and raped dozens of people in a Libya detention camp was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday. Osman Matamudd, 22, who was also sentence to solitary confinement for three years, was arrested in Milan in September.
    He was found guilty of multiple homicide, abducting hundreds of fellow Somali nationals for ransom, and sexual violence against dozens of young women and girls. The sentence was issued by the Milan Court of Assizes chaired by Giovanna Ichino after about five hours of deliberating.
    Matamudd, who has consistently professed his innocence and claimed to have been the victim of torture himself, said "now I hope in heaven".
