Bangladesh has executed opposition leader Abdul Quader Mollah for war crimes committed in 1971.
Mollah, 64, was hanged at Dhaka Central Jail on Thursday. He was assistant secretary general of the Jamaat-e-Islami party.
Security was tight for the execution which took place at 10.01pm.
The Supreme Court in September rejected a plea by Mullah for a review of his sentence.
He is the first of seven opposition leaders sentenced to be executed as a result of a series of verdicts handed down by a special tribunal set up to investigate war crimes committed during the 1971 liberation war against Pakistan.
