Thousands of people stood in silence for three minutes as they demanded swift execution of war criminals, police and witnesses reportedly said. The protests in Dhaka sparked eight days ago due to the life sentence given to the leader of the ‘Jamaat-e-Islami’ party, Quader Molla, a sentence the protesters call too lenient and demanding capital punishment instead. © Monirul Alam
