Specialized Inter-Regional Criminal Court of Atyrau oblast has gave prison terms for terrorism to 47 people involved in blasts, Interfax-Kazakhstan writes.

“On April 2 the sentence was announced to 5 people involved in the explosions in Atyrau on October 31. They were sentenced to between 6 and 12 years in jail. On April 18 the sentence was announced to 42 people; they were sentenced to between 5 and 15 years in jail,” acting head of the prosecution department Galymzhan Kulmanot said on Wednesday. The trial was held behind closed doors.

Earlier Tengrinews.kz English reported that two explosions rocked Atyrau in the morning of October 31, 2011.

The first blast was in the garbage can at Kulmanov street. An hour later a man blew himself up in Saryarka region. Islamic group Djund Al-Khalifat (Soldiers of Khalifat) claimed responsibility for both explosions after threatening attacks over the adoption of a new law on religion. The new law forbids religious ceremonies in state institutions and requires religious groups and missionaries to re-register with the government. Two criminal cases were initiated against the terrorists. One of them involved 5 people and the other one involved 42 people.
