dhaka - Bangladesh Sunday (local time) two opposition leaders executed for war crimes they allegedly committed in 1971. These are crimes during the war that Bangladesh seceded from Pakistan.

The Islamic opposition leader Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujahid and Salauddin Quader Chowdhury, a former lawmaker of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, are suspended, reported a police spokesman. That happened three days after President Abdulhamid had rejected their mercy request.
