Protests continue on Bangladesh streets

Protests and rallies continue in Bangladesh, after its war crimes tribunal sentenced an Islamic leader to death last week.

Delwar Hossain Sayeedi, of Jamaat-e-Islami, was sentenced on charges including murder, rape and torture during the war of independence in 1971.

Nearly 60 people have been killed in the last few days, in clashes sparked by the verdict.
