A 21-year-old Syrian man was found guilty of murder on Friday, seven months after a fatal knife attack on a gay couple. A court in the eastern German city of Dresden sentenced him to life in prison. The man, identified as Abdullah A. in accordance with German privacy regulations, was classified as an Islamist threat by investigators. He attacked two German men in October 2020, killing one 55-year-old and seriously injuring his 53-year-old partner. Prosecutors said he was motivated by religious-inspired homophobia.
