Carlos the Jackal appeals sentence

PARIS — Carlos the Jackal, the flamboyant terrorist and self-proclaimed revolutionary who was once one of the Cold War’s most wanted men, appeared in a French court Monday to appeal his life sentence for orchestrating bombings in France two decades ago.

Carlos, whose real name is Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, is serving two life sentences for a triple murder in 1975 and for the bombings in 1982 and 1983 that killed 11 people and injured more than 140.
