BERLIN (AP) _ After a four-year trial, an accused terrorist and a former accomplice of Carlos the Jackal will be sentenced next week in a bombing attack on a French cultural center, a Berlin court said Monday.

Johannes Weinrich, 52, is charged with murder, five counts of attempted murder and planting explosives in the Aug. 23, 1983, attack that killed one person and injured 23 others at a French cultural center in Berlin.

Prosecutors have sought a sentence of life in prison. A verdict is scheduled next Monday in the case.

Germany's longest-sought fugitive until his 1995 arrest in Yemen, Weinrich is a former Red Army Faction member who also headed European operations for international terrorist Carlos the Jackal in the 1970s and '80s.

Prosecutors say the Berlin bombing was one in a series of unsuccessful attempts to pressure France to free Carlos' lover and another member of his terrorist gang from a French prison.

Carlos, a Venezuelan whose real name is Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, was arrested in Sudan in 1994. He was handed over to France for trial for a string of killings and bombings dating from 1975.
