Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri, also known to British people as the 'Mad Mullah', was sentenced on Tuesday afternoon to 7 years in jail. This came after a jury in Britain convicted the radical Muslim cleric, earlier on Tuesday, of fomenting racial hatred and inciting followers to kill non-Muslims. Abu Hamza intended to appeal against his conviction on the grounds that the case against him was, in his opinion, politically motivated.
