Bangladesh Politicians Face Corruption Charges


At least 19 senior politicians in Bangladesh have been detained by security forces, and are suspected of corruption.

Members of the caretaker government said on Monday the administration is investigating top politicians in every political party.

Former ministers, members of parliament and other senior politicians from the outgoing ruling Bangladesh National Party and the main opposition Awami League were taken into custody Sunday, nearly one month after a state of emergency was declared.

Among those detained is a media tycoon Mosaddek Ali, who is a majority stakeholder in a bank and has close ties to former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia.

The arrests are part of a larger campaign by the caretaker government to crack down on corruption.

Matiur Rahman Choudhury has more on the story.
