Danish biker gets life for grenade attack

A Danish court has sentenced a member of motorcycle gang to life imprisonment for killing two people and wounding nineteen in a grenade attack on a rival gang.

The biker Niels Poulsen, from the Bandidos gang, was convicted of firing the missile into a compound where members of the Hell's Angels were having a party.

The attack, in 1996, was the bloodiest in a three-year gang war which ended last year with a truce.
