Bangladesh Execution Protests

FILE - In this Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013 file photo, Bangladeshi activists participate in a rally demanding the execution of Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Quader Mollah and others convicted of war crimes in Dhaka, Bangladesh. For many in Bangladesh, the ''V'' for victory sign was more than they could bear. They had waited more than four decades for justice in the mass killings and rapes during their independence war. But there was a smiling Mollah apparently celebrating his life sentence - given in place of an expected death sentence - for his role in the killing of 381 civilians. Within hours, thousands of university students demanding his death poured into the streets of Dhaka, the seeds of what has grown into a mass protest that has exposed again the unhealed wounds from the nation's 1971 war for independence from Pakistan.
