Thousands of people have gathered in Dhaka, Bangladesh, for the 10th consecutive day as protests calling for the death sentence for war criminal Abdul Quader Mollah continue.
The demonstrators have been gathering at the Shahbagh intersection in central Dhaka since Tuesday 5 February.
The demonstrations have been ongoing for over one week after a Bangladesh war crimes tribunal sentenced Abdul Quader Mollah, a senior leader of Jamaat-e-Islami party to life in prison on February 5, the second verdict in trials that have reopened wounds about the country's independence war and sparked riots.
64-year-old Mollah, was found guilty of charges including murder, rape, torture and arson during Bangladesh's war to break away from Pakistan in 1971.
The sentencing of Mollah, led to rioting, and after four people were killed during violence that flared late into the night on Tuesday, dozens more Jamaat-e-Islami supporters were wounded when riot police tried to disperse fresh protests on Wednesday near Dhaka and the southwestern district of Khulna.
