German synagogue attacker gets life

A 28-year-old man who confessed to carrying out a 2019 terrorist attack on a synagogue in Halle, Germany, has been handed a life sentence by a German court.

A regional court in Naumburg determined that, once Stephan Balliet had served out the 15-year sentence, he would be subject to preventive detention. This is the maximum penalty available under German law.

Ballier has confessed to attempting to storm a synagogue on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar, on October 9 last year.

He was unable to gain entry to the synagogue, but went on to kill a passer-by identified as Jana L, before killing Kevin S, a young man in a kebab shop.
