The verdicts cap a seven-month trial that was often held behind closed doors and punctuated by the death of a fifth suspect, who hanged himself in his jail cell.

Another defendant, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was 17 at the time of the attack and tried as a minor. He was sentenced to three years at a juvenile detention centre at the end of August.
