BBC News - Afghan massacre soldier Robert Bales gets life sentence
The US soldier who murdered 16 Afghan villagers last year has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Staff Sgt Robert Bales, 40, opened fire on men, children and women during the attack in Kandahar on 11 March 2012.
The father of two pleaded guilty in June to avoid the death penalty.
Justice for the victims or should he have got the death penalty?
