Excerpt:

DHAKA, Bangladesh In an apparently unprecedented ruling, 152 former members of the Bangladesh Rifles, a paramilitary border security force, were sentenced to death on Tuesday in connection with a bloody 2009 mutiny in which several thousand troops took control of their headquarters, demanding better working conditions, and killed scores of people.

As Bengali myself, I have a soft corner for Bangladesh. Hope they emerge stronger out of this.
