A court in Bangladesh has sentenced at least 150 soldiers to death over a bloody border guard mutiny in 2009.

More than 150 others, mostly border guards, were given life. Verdicts are still being read out.

Twenty-three civilians also face conspiracy charges.

The 823 soldiers being tried in the civilian court have already been jailed by military tribunals over the mutiny.

The 30-hour uprising over pay and other grievances broke out in Dhaka and left 74 people dead, 57 of them officers.
