A man who murdered an elderly Jewish woman in her Paris apartment has been sentenced to life in prison.

Yacine Mihoub, 32, was convicted of stabbing 85-year-old Mireille Knoll 11 times and then setting her body alight during a botched robbery in March 2018.

Her killing sparked public outcry over anti-Semitism in France.
