A Bangladeshi court sentenced to death three members of an outlawed Islamic militant outfit for carrying out a string of bombings in a northwestern town two years ago, a domestic news agency said Tuesday. The men were convicted in the Aug. 17, 2005 bombings, part a nationwide terror campaign by the banned Jumatul Mujahedeen Bangladesh, the United News of Bangladesh said. No one was hurt when the bombs exploded at crowded public places - including a court house, a government office and a bus station - in Naogaon, 190 kilometers (120 miles) northwest of the national capital, Dhaka. Two of the defendants were in court Tuesday, while a third was tried in absentia.
