UNITED Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday condemned what he called the “brutal acts of violence,” in the two-day mutiny by members of the Bangladesh Rifles border guards, which have resulted in a mounting death toll.

“The Secretary-General calls for calm and the resolution of this situation without further violence,” according to a statement released by Ban’s spokesperson, which also expressed sympathy for victims and their families.

According to media reports, the revolt against military officers left at least 40 people dead, with dozens of bodies found in mass graves, the statement added.
