The French Muslim extremist convicted of murdering four people in a terrorist attack at the Jewish Museum of Belgium in 2014 was sentenced to life in prison.

Mehdi Nemmouche, 33, was convicted last week for the 2014 attack that left four dead, including two Israeli tourists.

He smirked and told the Brussels criminal court on Monday that “life goes on,” as the jury was about to leave the courtroom to decide on the sentence, the French news agency AFP reported. The jury did not decide on the sentence until early Tuesday morning.

He has 15 days to appeal the sentence.

His accomplice received a sentence of 15 years in prison.
