A special court in Bangladesh has sentenced at least 152 soldiers to death over a bloody border guard mutiny in 2009.
The court also sentenced another 160 people to life in prison, including a former member of the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party.
Around 850 people had been accused of involvement in the bloody rampage that broke out in the capital Dhaka.
It quickly spread to a dozen other towns and left 74 people dead.
Prosecutor Mosharraf Hossain Kajol confirmed the court had sentenced 152 people to death.
"The court announced the death sentence to them for the heinous killing of the country's brave sons," he said.
The court also acquitted 171 soldiers, while others got jail terms of up to ten years and fines.
Grievances over different facilities for army and border guards led to the mutiny, Judge Mohammad Akhtaruzzaman said in comments accompanying the verdict.
"It also aimed to tarnish the image of the army in the outside world, where it has built up a reputation in performing UN peacekeeping duties," he added.
The mutiny shook the stability of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's newly elected government, which ended the revolt by negotiating a settlement.
The then chief of the roughly 48,000-strong paramilitary force was among those killed in the 33-hour rampage.
Others included 57 top and middle-ranking army officers deputed to the force, as well as several civilians.
