A court in Tajikistan on Thursday sentenced two leaders of the Central Asian nation's banned Islamic opposition party to life imprisonment over an alleged attempted coup, according to Daily Mail.

In addition to Mahmadali Hayit and Saidumar Khusaini, the Supreme Court sentenced another 12 top members of the Islamic Revival Party of Tajikistan, or IRPT, to prison terms of between two and 28 years at the end of a closed-doors trial that has been condemned by rights activists and the international community.
