Fugitive Islamist Militants in Bangladesh Sentenced


Court officials in Bangladesh say four fugitive militants have been sentenced in absentia to 40-year prison sentences for their involvement in the killing of two judges.

The two assistant judges were killed in a bomb attack in southern Bangladesh last November.

The four men sentenced on Monday are members of two banned Islamic militant groups, Jamayetul Mujahideen Bangladesh and Jagrata Muslim Janata Bangladesh, which want Bangladesh - a mainly Muslim country - to impose strict Islamic law.

Earlier this month, three other Islamic militants received jail sentences after they pleaded guilty for their involvement in the attack.

Amir Khasru has more on the story.
