Bangladesh's Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence of an Islamist leader, Abdul Kader Mullah.

The judge dismissed his appeal, saying it paves the way for his execution.

Mullah had been scheduled to be executed on Tuesday, before gaining a reprieve. No new date has been set.

He was convicted in February of crimes against humanity during the country's 1971 war of independence from Pakistan. The senior leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami party denies the charges.

Jamaat says that the trial is politically motivated.
