An Islamist leader has been hanged in Bangladesh for crimes during the war of independence from Pakistan in 1971.
Motiur Rahman Nizami, who is 73, was executed early on Wednesday, after been convicted of genocide, rape and torture.
Nizami had led Bangladesh's largest Islamist party, Jamaat-e-Islami. Hundreds of people gathered near his prison in Dhaka to celebrate the hanging.
Nizami was the fifth and highest-ranked opposition leader to be executed since December 2013 for war crimes.
