    Bangladesh continues to face political and social unrest over trial of Jamaat-e-Islami leaders accused of involvement in murder and other atrocities during country's liberation war in 1971.

    Protesters have been camping in the capital, Dhaka, for the last couple of weeks demanding capital punishment for those found guilty.

    On the other hand, supporters of Jamaat have held rival rallies, calling the war tribunal politically motivated.
