A court in Nepal has found Charles Sobhraj guilty of murdering an American tourist in 1975, and has sentenced him to 20 years in prison. The BBC has a profile of him. There is a much more colorful account of Sobhraj on Court TV’s website. When I did a search for who else had carried this story, I got hits from the tiniest newspapers all across the country, which I didn’t get when I did a search for “Darfur.” I suppose I am not the only person intrigued by this dangerous individual, having devoted two films (Eunuch Alley and Snake-Byte) to him as a character.
