A Turkish court on Friday sentenced two Islamic militants to life in prison for a failed attempt on a prominent Jewish businessman's life more than a decade ago.
The court in Istanbul found Yasar Polat and Kamil Askin, who allegedly belonged to the underground organization Islamic Action, guilty of attempting to kill businessman Jak Kamhi, who escaped the 1993 attack unharmed.
Three other suspects were given life sentences almost 10 years ago. Police captured Polat in 2003 and Askin was captured late last year, reportedly after returning from Afghanistan, private NTV television said. Another suspect, Ayhan Sagin, is still on the run.
