Bangladesh Ex-Party Chief Dies

Former chief of Bangladesh’s pro-Pakistan Jamaat-e-Islami party, Ghulam Azam has died of a heart attack at the age of 91 in a prison cell at a government hospital in Dhaka. A special tribunal last year sentenced Azam to 90 years in prison on charges of war crimes during the Bangladesh 1971 war of independence from Pakistan. The verdict triggered violent protests.
