The U.S. jury deciding the fate of al-Qaida conspirator Zacharias Moussaoui has sentenced the confessed terrorist to life in prison.
The 12-panel federal jury in the U.S. state of Virginia has been deliberating for seven days on whether to sentence the 37-year-old Frenchman to death or life in prison.
A unanimous decision was required to sentence him to death.
They had previously ruled he was responsible for at least one death in connection with the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001.
Moussaoui is the only person in the United States to be convicted in connection with the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks.
He pleaded guilty to six counts of conspiracy last year. The jury has already determined that Moussaoui was eligible for the death penalty.
