India has sentenced 38 Muslim men to death over a string of bombings in the western city of Ahmedabad in 2008 that killed dozens of people and injured hundreds of others. The death sentences capped a trial that spanned nearly a decade. The court found a group calling itself the “Indian Mujahideen” carried out the attacks as revenge for 2002 anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat state that left more than 1,000 people dead. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was at the time the chief minister of Gujarat; he’s been accused of turning a blind eye to the violence.
