A judge yesterday sentenced most Branch Davidians convicted of shooting and killing four federal agents to the stiffest penalties, closing another chapter for the religious cult that went down in flames, AP reports from San Antonio. Two Britons, Renos Avraam and Livingstone Fagan, were sentenced to the maximum 30 years for using or carrying a firearm while committing a crime and the maximum 10 years for manslaughter.

Following the recommendations of prosecutors, the judge, Walter Smith, imposed sentences of up to 40 years on eight defendants convicted in the shoot-out near Waco on 28 February, 1993.
