A Jewish extremist who plotted to blow up a Los Angeles mosque and the office of a US congressman of Lebanese descent has been sentenced to 20 years
Earl Krugel was arrested in 2001 with another leader of a group called the Jewish Defence League, Irv Rubin, who died in jail in an apparent suicide.
Krugel, 62, admitted the charges. The sentence was the heaviest he could receive under his plea bargain.
He apologised to the court for causing "sadness, pain and sorrow".
The plot was discovered before any blasts took place.
US District judge Ronald Lew said Krugel's crimes were "promoting hatred in the most vile way".

This is the first time I have read a Jewish extremist being arrested and sentenced in the US, showing that extremists on all sides would do anything
to build and make hatred much worse.
