The Bangladeshi military announced Jan. 19 it had foiled a coup plot to unseat the democratically elected government of Prime Minister Sheik Hasina. An army spokesman pinned the “heinous conspiracy” on mid-ranking officers “with extreme religious views” and a network of shadowy interests overseas. Details remain sketchy, but at least two retired military officers have been arrested, over a dozen others have been implicated in the plot, while one prominent officer has gone fugitive. Another supposed conspirator is allegedly in Hong Kong. It’s likely the military’s investigation will yield details of more culprits and suspects in the coming days.
