Terrorist Johannes Weinrich was acquitted by a German court on Monday of accusations that he taok part in a series of bombing attacks in France during the 1980s that killed six people. The court said there was not enough evidence to convict Weinrich.

Carlos the Jackal, whose real name is Illich Ramirez Sanchez, is serving a life term in France for a string of deadly attacks in Europe in the 1970s and 80s.
