Bangladesh's former prime minister Khaleda Zia, serving a five-year jail term in a corruption case, was today granted bail by the Supreme Court, which upheld a high court order in her favour considering her old age and health issues. Her lawyers, however, said that the verdict was unlikely to bring the 72-year-old Zia out of prison.
