A court in Bangladesh has sentenced at least 152 soldiers to death over a bloody border guard mutiny in 2009.

More than 150 others, mostly border guards, were given life sentences.

The 30-hour revolt began over pay and other grievances and spread from Dhaka to bases around the country. It left 74 people dead, 57 of them officers.
