BANGLADESH: 10 ISLAMISTS SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR 2001 BOMBING

January 21, 2020:

A Bangladeshi court sentenced 10 Islamic militants to death on 20 January 2020 for the bombing at communist party rally two decades ago that killed five people.
In January 2001 several bombs were detonated in Dhaka at a meeting of the Communist Party of Bangladesh, and police blamed the country's branch of the banned Harkat-ul-Jihad al Islami (HUJI) after an investigation lasting several years.
The attack was one of several carried out by militant groups whose members were returning to Bangladesh from the Afghanistan conflict in the early 2000s.
On 20 January, Dhaka city public prosecutor Abdullah Abu told AFP that 10 HUJI members had been convicted and sentenced to death.
"They carried out the bombing as part of their jihad to establish a militant government. They wanted to smear the image of the secular government and create anarchy," he said.
Two communist party members accused of involvement were acquitted.
