Reports quoted Bangladesh army officer saying they were digging up dozens of decomposing bodies from mass graves. All the victims appeared to be officers and were wearing combat fatigues. Many of the bodies were found in shallow holes that had been hastily covered with mounds of dirt.

Others had been thrown into the sewers of the sprawling compound that housed the soldiers and many of their families. As the toll mounted, the government declared two days of national mourning for the officers, according to Hasina's spokesman.

 The revolt has raised questions about the stability of Bangladesh and underlined the fragile relationship between the civilian government and the military. The impoverished South Asian nation has repeatedly faced bouts of military rule, returning most recently to democracy in January.

  Nevertheless, Hasina has been praised for her handling of the situation, compelling the rebels to surrender quickly. It remained unclear whether the amnesty would apply to those guards who tried to flee.
