Ukrainian Pavlo Lapshyn, who admitted murdering a grandfather from Birmingham and planting bombs near mosques in the West Midlands, has been sentenced at the Old Bailey to life in jail.
A judge told him: "You clearly hold extreme white supremacy views that are abhorrent to all right thinking people and have no place whatsoever in our multi-faith and multi-cultural society.
"You were intent on finding a Muslim to murder."
He will serve a minimum of 40 years.
