Arms dealer Viktor Bout sentenced to 25 years
Arms dealer Viktor Bout, dubbed the "merchant of death", has been sentenced to 25 years in jail by a US judge.
During the sentencing, the ex-Soviet officer shouted "It's a lie" as the prosecution said he had agreed to sell weapons to kill Americans.
He was arrested in Bangkok in 2008 after a sting operation in which US informants posed as Colombian rebels.
