Ten people were sentenced to death in Bangladesh amid the bomb explosion at a communist rally 20 years ago, leaving five people killed, AFP reported.
In January 2001, several bombs were detonated in Dhaka.
Dhaka city public prosecutor Abdullah Abu said that 10 militants were sentenced to death.
"They carried out the bombing as part of their jihad to establish a militant government. They wanted to smear the image of the secular government and create anarchy," he said.
