An Iranian man who blew off his own legs was sentenced to life in prison by a Thai court on Thursday for his involvement in a botched bomb plot that rocked Bangkok last year. A court found Saeid Moradi guilty of attempted murder in an attack that authorities say was intended to target Israeli diplomats. Five people were wounded by a series of explosions in Bangkok on February 14, 2012. Israel has accused arch-enemy Iran of orchestrating the attacks, but Tehran denies the accusations. Moradi was arrested at the scene of the bombing.
