The program was a hit, and last fall the systems seven regional libraries rolled out Express Book Bags to all adults, with forms available online or at the main desk. Kelly Karius, a mom of three in Apex, first heard about the program during a story time at Eva Perry Regional Library last fall and decided the time was right to give it a try. I finally got my daughter sleeping through the night, so Im able to stay up later and do something, she said. Im not really a TV watcher, Im more of a reader. And I was just kind of excited to enjoy reading again. She filled out the form, listing Rick Bragg, Frank McCourt, true crime writer Ann Rule and The Secret Life of Bees as authors and books she likes. When she picked up her bag, she found The Glass Castle, a memoir of an unconventional upbringing by Jeannette Walls; Jon Krakauers Into the Wild; and The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom, a historical novel about indentured servitude and slavery at a Virginia tobacco plantation. She already read The Glass Castle, but she enjoyed Into the Wild (and, after reading it, watched the movie with her husband) and said The Kitchen House was really good I enjoyed reading that a lot because I learned some things I didnt know. She said she was planning to request an Express Book Bag again, and you could hear a little excitement in her voice after her experience with her first one. It felt like somebody was giving me a gift, she said. It comes in a little bag, and they hand it to you, and, as a mom, you know, nobody gives YOU a gift. Rarely do you get something thats like, This is special for you, I have picked this out just for you. You get home and youre all excited and, like, What books did I get? It was nice.

It's thought to be the first time members of the notorious Rapid Action Battalion have received the death penalty. One of the three officers, Tarek Sayeed, is the son-in-law of a government minister. Many other defendants in the case were regular policemen. Bodies dumped Witnesses saw the murdered men, who included local government officials, being bundled into an unmarked van in Narayanganj in April 2014.

Their bodies were later found with the others in the river. Among those killed was local councillor Nazrul Islam, a political rival of Nur Hossain. Hossain, an Awami League politician, was last week repatriated to Bangladesh from India. He was found guilty of paying senior RAB members cash to carry out the abductions and killings. Twelve of those found guilty were convicted in absentia.
