Chicago: A court in Chicago will on Thursday sentence Pakistani-American Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist David Coleman Headley for his role in 2008 Mumbai terror attacks and plot to attack a Danish newspaper. He, however, is likely to avoid life imprisonment. Citing the 'significant cooperation' Headley showed in helping the US government in its effort to combat terrorism, US federal prosecutors had sought only 30 to 35 years in prison for him.
