Khaleda Zia Released on Bail

Former Bangladeshi Premier and Bangladesh Nationalist Party leader Khaleda Zia has been released on bail after spending a year in jail on corruption charges. Regaining her freedom temporarily, she joins another former prime minister and the leader of the rival Awami League party Sheikh Hasina, who was released on parole in June. The two leaders, along with several of their party members, were arrested as part of an anti-corruption drive by the army-backed interim government that took power last year.
