Dhaka: Bangladeshi opposition leader Khaleda Zia is set to be released from jail after a court on Monday granted her bail, her lawyer said.

"The court has ordered an interim bail of four months for Madam Zia," her lawyer, Zainul Abedin, told reporters, a month after she was imprisoned for five years for embezzlement.
