Bangladesh: Riots continue after war crimes trial


There has been more violence in Bangladesh following the sentencing to death of an Islamist party leader, Delwar Hossain Sayeedi.

Police say one person was killed in unrest in the north of the country, when supporters of his Jamaat-e-Islami party clashed with members of the governing Awami League.

At least 34 people have been killed across Bangladesh since Sayeedi was convicted of carrying out war crimes including rape, torture and murder during Bangladesh's war of independence more than 40 years ago.
