3 Bangladeshi Militants Sentenced to Death for 2004 Attack


A Bangladeshi court has sentenced three Islamist militants to death for a 2004 grenade attack that killed three people and wounded 50 others, including a British diplomat.

The court in the northeastern city of Sylhet also sentenced two other militants to life imprisonment today (Tuesday) for the attack.

The May 2004 grenade attack in Sylhet was aimed at British ambassador Anwar Choudhury, a Bangladesh-born envoy who was visiting his ancestral village.

Among the militants sentenced to death by hanging was Mufti Abdul Hannan, the leader of a banned Islamist group Harkatul Jihad al Islami (HUJI).

The defendants say they will appeal the verdicts.
