AHMABADAD, India (AP) -- A court in India has convicted 31 Hindus
of killing dozens of Muslims by setting a building on fire during one of India's worst rounds of communal violence nine years ago.

An additional 41 Hindus were acquitted of murder charges for lack of evidence.

The judge will sentence those convicted later this week. They face the death penalty.
