Two men have been sentenced to death in a case that sparked violent clashes between Muslims and Buddhists in Burma.

The men were convicted of raping and killing a Buddhist woman in Rakhine state last month.

A third suspect who died in jail was given a posthumous conviction.

At least 50 people died in revenge attacks and riots that followed the incident and thousands have been displaced.

Analysts say it is unlikely that the men will be put to death, as no prisoners have been executed in Burma since before 1988.
