In Bangladesh, 152 Soldiers to Die, More than 150 Get Life in Prison
One of the largest trials in Bangladesh’s history ended Tuesday with the sentencing at a court in Dhaka of more than 300 participants for their role in a 2009 uprising. Some 800 were allegedly involved in a mutiny over pay and other issues, and 74 died. Human rights groups slammed the court, saying prosecuting so many at once wasn’t justice (at least 50 died in custody) in a case that pitted the military against the government. Appeals are expected.
