LONDON: A British paedophile who preyed on Christian children in an impoverished part of Kuala Lumpur was sentenced on Monday to life in prison with a minimum term of 25 years. Judge Peter Rook handed Richard Huckle 22 life sentences to be served concurrently after he pleaded guilty to raping 22 children. He had admitted a total of 71 offences against children he groomed while posing as a volunteer working with Christian communities in the Malaysian capital.
