'Coup plot' foiled in Bangladesh
The Bangladesh military has said it has foiled a bid by mutinous officers to overthrow the government of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.
Brigadier General Muhammad Masud Razzaq told reporters that the military has specific evidence that a group of up to 16 hardline Islamic military officers - including at least two retired officers - were planning to remove the democratically elected government in a coup.
He called their plans a "heinous conspiracy".
He said two retired officers have been arrested.
