Bangladesh Court Sentences Five Militants for Bombings

  • VOA News

A court in Bangladesh has sentenced five Islamic militants to 10 years in prison for bombings last year outside Dhaka airport.

The five men are members of an outlawed Islamic group known as the Jumatul Mujahedin Bangladesh. It has been blamed for a series of bombings across Bangladesh since August 2005.

The court found the suspects guilty of bombings outside Dhaka's Zia International Airport last year in August when more than 400 small homemade bombs exploded across the country in almost simultaneous attacks.

The five include Ataur Rahman, one of the top military commanders of the group. He has already been sentenced to death for his involvement in the killing of two judges in May this year. The high court has upheld the death sentence and death warrant has already been issued.
