Bloomer was stabbed numerous times in front of several witnesses inside the Metro Transit station in downtown Oklahoma City in an attack that was caught on security video.

An Uzbek man who plowed through a crowd in Stockholm last year with a stolen truck — killing five people in what he said was a revenge attack for Sweden fighting against ISIS — will now spend the rest of his life in prison.

Rakmat Akilov was convicted Thursday of terror-related murder and given a life sentence for the April 2017 attack, which left a British man, a Belgian woman and three Swedes, including an 11-year-old girl, dead.

Akilov had said he wanted to punish Sweden for joining a coalition against the Islamic State group.

A Teen Girl Was Found Guilty of Plotting a Terrorist Attack in London

  A Teen Girl Was Found Guilty of Plotting a Terrorist Attack in London An 18-year-old girl has been found guilty of planning, alongside her mother and sister, an attack on the British Museum in London, in what is being called the U.K.’s first all-female, ISIS-related terrorist plot. Safaa Boular, from Vauxhall, south London, was detained by police for her attempt to join her partner Naweed Hussain, an ISIS recruiter, in Syria, where the pair planned to carry out a suicide attack, according to the prosecutor in Boular’s trial. The pair had met online when Boular was about 16 and Hussain was 15 years her senior, Sky News reports. When Hussain was killed in Syria, Boular was charged and detained. She soon recruited her older sister, Rizlaune, to help with a grenade and gun attack in central London, wanting to join Hussain in martyrdom, The Guardian reports. Police discovered messages on her phone between the sisters, who used an Alice in Wonderland-themed code to discuss the plan. Rizlaine Boular, 22, pleaded guilty to plotting the attack and her mother, Mina Dich, admitted to assisting her, The Guardian reports. The prosecutor, Duncan Atkinson, said Boular and Hussain “planned to launch an attack against members of the public, selected largely at random, in the environs of that cultural jewel and most popular of tourist attractions, the British Museum, in central London,” according to Sky. Safaa Boular is one of the youngest women to have been charged and convicted of terrorism offenses in Britain. During the trial, her lawyer claimed that she had been “groomed” by Hussain. A jury deliberated for two days before finding Safaa Boular guilty. Sentencing will take place in about six weeks.

Sweden truck attacker convicted, given life sentence 06/07/2018www.foxnews.com. A Swedish court has sentenced a man to life in prison for a truck attack in Stockholm in 201706/07/2018www.liveleak.com.

An Uzbek man who plowed through a crowd in Stockholm last year with a stolen truck -- killing five people in what he said was a revenge attack for Sweden fighting against ISIS -- will now spend the rest of his life in prison .

Judge Ragnar Palmkvist said Akilov, 40, was the only suspect in the attack, and that prosecutor Hans Ihrman called him a "security risk to society" during his trial at the Stockholm District Court.

The prosecution had demanded a life sentence while defense lawyer Johan Eriksson said his client had been cooperative throughout the investigation and should be given a time-limited sentence.

During the court proceedings, which started on Feb. 13 and ended on May 2, Ihrman said "Akilov took the right to determine the fate of so many people. Now it is the turn of the democratic rule of law to determine the fate of Akilov."

After plowing the stolen beer truck into a crowd of shoppers on a busy shopping street and crashing into the upscale Ahlens department store in Stockholm's city center, Akilov also planned to blow himself up. He failed, and caused a smaller explosion inside the truck when a suspected bomb made of five gas canisters with dozens of screws, blades and smaller metal objects went off.

Akilov then escaped via Stockholm's subway system but was arrested hours later in a suburb.

He was found guilty of five counts of terror-related murder, 119 counts of attempted murder and 24 cases of endangering the life of others.
