Bangladeshi Islamist leader Ghulam Azam has been charged by a special tribunal with war crimes allegedly carried out during the country's 1971 independence struggle against Pakistan.
Prosecutors accuse Mr Azam, 89, of committing crimes, including murder and torture, during the nine-month war.
Mr Azam denies the charges, arguing that they are politically motivated.
He is the most high profile Islamist leader to have been charged by the tribunal since it was set up in 2010
