Indian Court Sentences 7 More Convicts for Mumbai Blasts


An Indian court has sentenced seven more people for their roles in the 1993 bombings in Mumbai that killed more than 250 people.

The court on Tuesday issued jail terms ranging from five years to life in prison for those convicted in the nation's deadliest terrorist attack.

Several customs officials were among those sentenced to prison terms of five- to nine years.

The judge sentenced one man to life in prison because he helped to conceal explosives.

In 1993, 12 blasts in the financial capital's stock exchange and commercial buildings killed 257 people.

One-hundred people have been convicted in the attack. Sentencing began earlier this month.

The two suspected leaders of the bombing plot, Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon, remain at large.

Indian authorities say the bombings were acts of revenge for religious riots that killed hundreds of Muslims and destroyed a 16th century mosque in the city of Ayodhya in 1992.
