A Bangladeshi court on Tuesday sentenced to death by hanging three Islamic militants convicted of plotting to kill the British ambassador in a grenade attack four years ago. The British High Commission in Dhaka immediately welcomed a resolution in the case but condemned the death sentences. The three men, along with two others sentenced to life imprisonment, were convicted in a fast-track court in the northeastern city of Sylhet for the blasts, which left at least three people dead and scores wounded. "The judge said the charges against the five have been proved beyond doubt. He sentenced three militants, including Harkat-ul Jihad al Islami (HUJI) leader Mufti Abdul Hannan, to be hanged," police inspector Abdul Ahad Chowdhury said.
