A tribunal in Chattogram has handed death to five members of banned militant outfit Jama'atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) in a case filed in connection to the blasts at two mosques inside Bangladesh Navy's Issa Khan base in Chattogram.

Judge Abdul Halim of the Chattogram Anti-Terrorism Tribunal delivered the verdict in the case on Wednesday.

The death-row convicts are M Sakhawat Hossain, Abdul Mannan, Ramzan Ali, Babul Rahman aka Rony, and Abdul Gaffar.

Of the convicts, Sakhawat remain absconding since the incident.
