An Indian court has sentenced 11 men to death after finding them guilty of setting a train on fire nine years ago, killing 60 Hindu nationalists and triggering one of India's worst outbursts of religious violence in recent years. Judge P R Patel last week convicted 31 Muslim men of being part of a criminal conspiracy that led to the deaths of 60 people when a Sabarmati Express train coach packed with Hindu pilgrims was set on fire by a Muslim mob in Godhra, western Gujarat, in 2002. The court on Tuesday sentenced the other 20 people convicted in the case to life imprisonment, prosecutor J M Panchal said. Those convicted have 90 days to appeal against their sentence. About 1,000 people were killed after the fire, when groups of Hindus rampaged through Muslim neighbourhoods and towns in Gujarat from February to April 2002. Most of the dead were Muslims.
