Alikhan Ortskhanov detonated a car packed with explosives at an entrance to a central market in Vladikavkaz, capital of North Ossetia, Sep 9, 2010. More than 230 people were injured in the blast.
Ortskhanov was also found guilty of carrying out other “grave and extremely grave crimes”, including attempts to kill police officers and illegal arms trafficking.
