Nail Bomber Gets 50

Dave Copeland, the "Soho nail bomber", had his prison sentence extended to 50 years yesterday, after a High Court judge ruled that 30 years had been too lenient. In 1999, Copeland set off a nail bomb in London's Admiral Duncan Pub in the Soho gay district, killing three and wounding eighty, some of whom had limbs amputated. Copeland chose the Admiral Duncan because it was alphabetically first in a list of London gay bars.
