Paris (AP) — A French court found 20 men in 2015 for being involved in an Islamic state terrorist attack on the Bataclan Theater, a Parisian cafe, and the French National Stadium.

The most deadly peacetime attack in French history killed 130 people.

Judge Jean-Louis Peries ruled on Wednesday in a courthouse surrounded by unprecedented security.

The main suspect, Sara Abdeslam, was found guilty of murder and attempted an attempted murder in connection with a terrorist company. He is facing life imprisonment. There is no death penalty in France.

according to New York TimesAbdeslam admitted that he had dropped the suicide bomber who carried out the attack, but claimed that he had changed his mind about blasting himself.

“I made a mistake,” Abdeslam said. “But I’m not a murderer, I’m not a murderer.”

The verdict concludes the nine-month trial.
