Bangladesh opposition leader Khaleda Zia has been sentenced to five years in jail for corruption.

The verdict was read out in a court in Dhaka after police used tear gas to disperse thousands of her supporters.

Ms Zia, 72, denies misusing international funds donated to a charitable children's trust.

The sentence means she is barred from parliamentary polls due this year. She said the charges were politically motivated.
