US mail bomber targeting Trump critics sentenced to 20 years in prison

NEW YORK, Aug 6: The man who mailed explosives to several prominent US political figures in 2018 was sentenced in New York City on Monday to 20 years in prison.
“I am beyond so very sorry for what I did,” Cesar Sayoc said before Judge Jed Rakoff at a federal court in Manhattan before he was sentenced, local media reported.
Sayoc, a 57-year-old from the state of Florida, sent 16 pipe bombs to 13 people across the country during the weeks leading up to the mid-term elections last year, causing a nationwide scare. His targets included former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among other critics of President Donald Trump.
