Pittsburgh synagogue gunman gets death penalty – BBC News

A US federal jury has sentenced the attacker who killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh in October 2018 to the death penalty.

The ruling needed a unanimous vote from the 12-member jury for the sentence to be imposed. Prosecutors had asked the jury to vote for the death penalty.

The same jury found the man guilty of all 63 charges stemming from the attack on the Tree of Life synagogue.

It was the worst antisemitic attack in American history.
