A court in Bangladesh has sentenced 10 people to death after finding them guilty of assisting a suicide
bombing. 

A judge announced the sentences in the capital Dhaka, special public prosecutor Rafiqul Islam, told the AFP news agency on Thursday. 

"They assisted the suicide bomber in making the bomb, providing information, planning and carrying out the attack," the prosecutor said.

The attack on an office of a lawyers' association in November 2005 killed eight people, plus the bomber, and injured at least 100 others, the prosecutor said.
