Bangladesh Releases 1,000 Prisoners from Overcrowded Jails

Authorities in Bangladesh today freed 1,000 prisoners serving life sentences to ease the pressure on overcrowded jails.

Inmates in 67 prisons – including those serving multiple sentences for crimes such as murder – were told of their release the night before, after government instructions to free long-serving prisoners, The Guardian reports.

Dhaka 's central jail is currently holding 540 female prisoners, although the facility has capacity for only 134 people.

Government officials said that prisoners convicted of terrorism-related crimes or crimes against the state would not be released, Telegraph informs.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
