Bangladesh War Crimes

Bangladesh War Crimes

Bangladeshi activists attend a rally to demand executions for people convicted of war crimes involving the nation's independence war in 1971, in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Friday, Feb. 8, 2013. The protesters in Dhaka urged Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to review a verdict sentencing a senior leader of Islamic party Jamaat-e-Islami to life in prison for killings and other crimes. The protesters said the life term was not enough as Abdul Quader Mollah was found by a tribunal guilty of five charges, including playing a role in the killing of 381 unarmed civilians. Placards read "we demand death penalty for war criminals," right, and "Liberation war has not ended. Bangladesh will fight again." (AP Photo/Pavel Rahman)
