Bangladesh court to decide on execution of top Islamist
Bangladesh's highest court held a hearing Wednesday to decide the fate of an Islamist leader sentenced to death for war crimes, after he was given a dramatic last-minute reprieve from execution. A judge stayed the hanging of Jamaat-e-Islami party leader Abdul Quader Molla on Tuesday night, just 90 minutes before his scheduled execution overnight at a jail in the capital Dhaka. He would have been the first person put to death for massacres committed during Bangladesh's 1971 independence war following a series of verdicts by a special war crimes court that have sparked deadly protests. The Supreme Court on Wednesday heard an appeal on whether Molla could seek a review of the death sentence, with his lawyers arguing that he had "a constitutional right" to do so.
