The man behind a shocking knife attack on the US ambassador to South Korea was convicted of attempted murder on Friday and sentenced to 12 years for the assault that left the envoy needing 80 stitches to a deep gash on his face.

Prosecutors had sought a 15-year sentence for Kim Ki-Jong, 56, who lunged at Mark Lippert with a paring knife during a breakfast function in Seoul in March.
