Six men found guilty of 1993 Mumbai blasts

Six men have been found guilty of the 1993 Mumbai blasts.

Abu Salem who fled India after the bombings and was extradited from Portugal in 2005 was amongst them.

The explosions killed 257 people, and were allegedly to avenge the killing of Muslims in riots a few months earlier.

Sites targeted included the Bombay Stock Exchange, the offices of Air India and a luxury hotel.

Friday's convictions were the second leg of a trial that took almost a quarter of a century to complete.

The six men were found guilty of criminal conspiracy and murder.
