The Bangladeshi feminist writer, Taslima Nasreen, has
been given a one-year prison sentence on a charge of writing derogatory
comments about Islam in several of her books.
This is the first sentence against the writer who was forced to flee the country in 1994 after receiving death threats from Muslim extremists.
Taslima Nasreen's criticism of traditional Islamic values and customs angered many hard line Islamic groups in Bangladesh.
