Rebels outside Dhaka are urged to surrender as well


 

A Bangladeshi border guard mutiny ended today, one day after guards rebelled, took hostages, and clashed with regular soldiers. Nearly 50 people are thought to have died. “All the rebel troops have surrendered with their arms and the process has been completed,” a spokesman for the prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, said, referring to mutineers in the capital, Dhaka. He urged rebels outside Dhaka to surrender as well.
