Bangladeshi Militants Charged with Sedition


Bangladesh has filed sedition charges against the seven top leaders of an Islamic militant group allegedly linked to a deadly wave of nationwide blasts.

The outlawed Jamayetul Mujahedin Bangladesh wants strict Islamic laws imposed in the Muslim but secular nation. It has been blamed for a series of bomb attacks since last August that have killed at least 28 people, including four suicide bombers.

Police say they have arrested five of the organization's seven-man decision-making body, including its leader Shaikh Abdur Rahman and second-in-command Siddiqul Islam, also known as Bangla Bhai. Two others are still at large.

Police say they have been accused of waging a war against a constitutionally elected government and conspiracy to oust that government

Thousands of police, security forces and paramilitary groups had been hunting them for months.

Amir Khasru has more on the story.
