Known worldwide as Carlos, the 67-year-old is already serving a life sentence in France for a series of murders and attacks he has been convicted of perpetrating or organizing in the country on behalf of the Palestinian cause or communist revolution in the 1970s and '80s.
At his terrorism trial, which opened Monday, and a conviction for which would earn him a third life sentence, he was asked by a judge if he had any regrets.
"Yes, I have regrets — because I'm kindhearted — that I did not kill people I should have killed," Carlos answered.
Having already served 20 years in prison after finally being captured in Sudan and taken to France in a sack, he looks remarkably well. Prison must agree with him.
