>Bangladesh ex-PM formally charged for extortion

Bangladesh police today filed formal extortion charges against former prime minister Sheikh Hasina, now in a special jail, along with her sister and a former cabinet colleague who is also her cousin.
Hasina’s younger sister, Sheikh Rahana, lives in London, while her cousin, Sheikh Selim, is also now in jail.
Hasina, leader of the Awami League, was arrested at her home in Bangladesh capital Dhaka on July 16 and sent to a house converted into a prison inside the parliament compound.
Selim, former health minister who was arrested in late April, confessed to extorting ($435,000) from a businessman and sharing it with Hasina.
