Bangladesh court sentences 152 to death for 2009 mutiny
A special court in Bangladesh on Tuesday sentenced to death more than 150 people, from among hundreds of mutineers accused of murder and arson at the headquarters of the country's border guards in 2009. Prosecutor Mosharraf Hossain Kajol told Reuters the court sentenced 152 people to death. "The court announced the death sentence to them for the heinous killing of the country's brave sons," he said. The incident shook the stability of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's newly elected government, which ended the revolt by negotiating a settlement.
