    A court in Bangladesh has charged the son of a former prime minister over a 2004 grenade attack that killed 24 people and injured hundreds.

    Prosecutors say Tarique Rahman had planned to kill the current Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

    After 7 years of investigation, retractions and accusations of intimidation by officials, authorities have named 52 people in the attack.

    Now, all eyes are on the court which is expected to pronounce a verdict in a trial where one of the main suspects is out of the country.
