Bangladesh Islamist Leader Found Guilty of War Crimes

A Bangladesh war crimes court sentenced 90-year-old Islamist leader Ghulam Azam to 90 years in prison for mass killings, rape and other crimes committed during the nation’s war of independence in 1971. The verdict has sparked violent clashes between anti- and pro-Azam groups, resulting in at least three deaths thus far.
