A Paris court sentenced terrorist Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, 62...aka 'Carlos the Jackal'...to life in prison for organizing four attacks in France in the 1980's...that killed 11 people and wounded more than 140.
He is already serving a life sentence there for a 1975 triple murder.
Ramirez Sanchez was born in Venezuela.
President Hugo Chavez has praised Ramirez as a 'revolutionary fighter'...not as a terrorist.
