Bangladesh murder mayor 'hides' in Sweden
A 70-year-old former mayor of Bangladesh who has been sentenced to death for mass killings and torture in the 1970s, is believed to be hiding in Sweden, according to Bangladesh's chief police commissioner.
Zahid Hossein, who is also a former leader of the Bangladesh National Party, was found guilty of charges including rape, torture and arson by a war crimes tribunal in Dhaka on Thursday.
According to the court, he also forced Hindus to convert to Islam and was directly involved in the killing of around fifty people.
