Huge rallies in Bangladesh seek death penalty for war crimes2/9/2013
Hundreds of thousands of Bangladeshis have rallied all this week in support of the ultimate penalty for crimes committed during its 1971 war of independence. Observers likened the mass demonstrations to those in Cairo's Tahrir Square — the focal point of last year's Arab Spring uprising. The protests kicked off on Tuesday, following news that one convicted war criminal, Abdul Kader Mullah, had been handed a life sentence, rather than the death penalty, after being found guilty on five charges, including murder. "I did not see 1971, but those who killed our people ... should be hanged," one student told the Associated Press. [Source]
