March 03, 1985

An Armenian militant was sentenced to life imprisonment in France, and two others received sentences of 10 and 15 years for their roles in a terrorist bombing at Paris' Orly Airport two years ago that killed eight people and injured 56. Waroujan Garbidian was described by the prosecution as the mastermind behind the bombing at the airport's Turkish Airlines desk in July, 1983. Garbidian, 31, is a self-confessed member of the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia, a violently anti-Turkish terrorist group.
