Swedish biker gang chief gets 9 years in prison

Swedish biker gang chief gets 9 years in prison

The leader of a Swedish chapter of the Bandidos motorcycle club has been found guilty of orchestrating two car bombings in 2006.
Mehdi Seyyed was sentenced to nine years in prison.
The Goteborg district court on Wednesday said the 34-year-old ordered attacks against two men in the city on the west coast of Sweden. Hand grenades exploded under their cars, but both survived.
The court says one of the car owners had appeared as a witness against Seyyed in an earlier trial, while the other had denied him access to a night club.
Seyyed has denied the charges. It wasn't immediately clear if he would appeal.
Four others received sentences between 2.5 years and 9 years in prison for involvement in the explosions.
