    FILE - In this Feb. 16, 2013 file photo, Bangladeshi mourners carry the coffin containing the body of blogger Rajib Haider for funeral in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Haider had been critical of the Islamic group Jamaat-e-Islami, whose leader Abdul Quader Mollah was recently given a life sentence for his role in the killing of 381 civilians during the nation’s 1971 war for independence from Pakistan. On Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, Bangladesh parliament has amended the country’s war crimes law that will allow the prosecution to appeal the life imprisonment of an opposition leader which it says has been lenient.

    FILE - In this Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013 file photo, Bangladeshi activists shout slogans demanding the execution of Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Quader Mollah and others convicted of war crimes in Dhaka, Bangladesh. They had waited more than four decades for justice in the mass killings and rapes during their independence war. But there was a smiling Mollah apparently celebrating his life sentence - given in place of an expected death sentence - for his role in the killing of 381 civilians. Within hours, thousands of university students demanding his death poured into the streets of Dhaka, the seeds of what has grown into a mass protest that has exposed again the unhealed wounds from the nation's 1971 war for independence from Pakistan.

    FILE - In this Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013 file photo, Bangladeshi activists participate in a candle light vigil demanding the execution of Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Quader Mollah and others convicted of war crimes during the nation's independence war in 1971, in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Mollah, an assistant secretary of Jamaat, was found guilty of killing a student and a family of 11 and of aiding Pakistani troops in killing 369 others. Members of his party took to the streets in anger at his conviction, exploding homemade bombs and clashing with police. But they were soon overshadowed by thousands of protesters who flooded a major intersection in the capital, Dhaka, upset at what they said was a lenient verdict and inflamed by the image of Mollah smiling at journalists and holding up two fingers in a ''V'' sign as he left the court.
