A court in Bangladesh has sentenced five men to life in prison for their part in a series of bombings last year.
The men were members of a banned group trying to establish strict Islamic law in Bangladesh, Jamayetul Mujahedin Bangladesh. They were convicted of taking part in a terror attack in which more than 400 small bombs exploded almost simultaneously across the country on August 17th.
The wave of bombings targeted courts and other government buildings. It killed at least two people and wounded more than 100 countrywide.
On Monday, the leader and four other members of the rebel group were given death sentences for killing two judges in a separate attack in November.
