Osama Bin Laden's son-in-law, who was an al-Qaeda spokesman after 9/11, has been sentenced to life in prison for terrorism-related charges at a trial in New York.

Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, 48, is the highest-ranking al-Qaeda figure to face trial on US soil since the attacks.

The Kuwaiti clergyman was captured in Jordan last year and brought to the US.

In March, a jury found Abu Ghaith guilty of conspiracy to kill Americans and aiding al-Qaeda.

Videos showing Abu Ghaith threatening America with no end to the "storm of airplanes'' were shown to jurors.
