Death for Karachi bombers

A Pakistani court has convicted four men over last year’s car bomb attack outside the US consulate in Karachi, sentencing two of them to death. A special anti-terrorism court in the city found the men guilty of masterminding the bombing last June, in which 12 Pakistanis were killed. A fifth man was acquitted. The accused were all members of a radical offshoot of the Harkat ul-Mujahideen militant group. “The case against four of the men has been proven and two are awarded the death sentence,” Judge Ahle Maqbool Rizvi announced in the heavily-guarded courtroom inside Karachi’s central jail. The judge sentenced the group’s leaders, Mohammed Imran and Mohammed Hanif, to death by hanging, saying they had masterminded the attack. Mohammed Sharib and Mufti Zubair were sentenced to life for their role in the bombing, while Mohammed Ashraf was acquitted for lack of evidence. Full Story
