Activists of Bangladesh's Jamaat-e-Islami set fire to a blanket on a street during a day-long strike in protest against the decision by country's war crimes tribunal to deliver judgement in a case against their top leader Abdul Quader Mollah, in Dhaka February 5, 2013. A controversial war crimes tribunal sentenced a senior leader of Bangladesh's biggest Islamist party to life imprisonment on Tuesday, the second verdict in ongoing trials that have reopened old wounds about the country's bloody independence struggle. Abdul Quader Mollah was found guilty of charges including murder, rape, torture and arson during Bangladesh's war to break away from Pakistan in 1971. REUTERS/Andrew Biraj
