Bangladesh court hands former PM new jail term

DHAKA: A Bangladesh court on Monday sentenced former prime minister and opposition leader Khaleda Zia to another seven years in prison on corruption charges that her supporters say are politically motivated. 

 A judge in the capital Dhaka found her guilty of graft charges linked to the misappropriation of 31.5 million taka ($375,000) set aside for a charity. 

 Zia has been in prison since February when she was sentenced to five years for embezzling funds for an orphanage.
