    Jamaat men torch Hindu temple, houses in Noakhali; 2 killed

    Hours after Jamaat top leader Delawar Hossain Sayedee was sentenced to death, Jamaat and Shibir activists set fire to a temple and houses of Hindu community at different parts of Noakhali on Thursday.

    Two people were killed as the activists clashed with law enforcers at different points of the district town, reports our Noakhali correspondent.

    Md Khokon, 17, a tempo helper, received a bullet wound in the clash around 3:45pm, locals said.

    Doctors pronounced Khokon dead after he was rushed to Noakhali Medical College Hospital at 4:00pm, said medical sources.

    A top leader of Bangladesh's fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami was today sentenced to death for "crimes against humanity" during the 1971 liberation war against Pakistan, triggering widespread clashes across the country that left at least 32 people dead.

    Delwar Hossain Sayedee, 73, vice-president of the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), was handed down death penalty by a special war crimes tribunal after he was found guilty of eight counts out of 20 involving mass killings, rape and atrocities during the nine-month war against Pakistan.

    "He (Delwar Hossain Sayedee) will be hanged by neck till he is dead," pronounced chairman of the three-judge International Crimes Tribunal Justice ATM Fazle Kabir.

    Soon after the verdict the JI members went on rampage, sparking violence across the country that left at least 32 people dead, authorities said.

    Earlier, the party, Muslim-majority Bangladesh's largest Islamic bloc, enforced a nationwide general strike to denounce the trial and to demand Sayedee's acquittal.

    Of the deceased, six people, including three cops, were killed in Gaibandha, four in Thakurgaon, three in Satkhira, two each in Rangpur, Noakhali, Chittagong, Moulvibazar and Sirajganj while one each in Dinajpur, Natore, Cox's Bazar and Chapainawabganj. Five deaths were also reported from other parts of the country.

    Meanwhile, JI has called a 48-hour nationwide strike from Sunday protesting death penalty for Sayedee.

    Amiruzzaman, Jamaat chief of Chittagong (North), said the party would organise special prayers tomorrow and stage protest rallies on Saturday across the country.

    Sayedee is the third JI politician to be convicted by the Tribunal since the trial of war crimes suspects, mostly belonging to the Islamist group, began three years ago.

    In the first verdict in January, former Jamaat leader Abul Kalam Azad was sentenced to death on similar charges.

    Another Jamaat leader Abdul Quader Mollah was sentenced to life in February for atrocities during the war.

    Jamaat-e-Islami was opposed to the 1971 liberation war when officially 3 million people were killed and 200,000 women were raped.

    Sayedee's chief counsel Abdur Razzak, however, said they would file an appeal against the verdict before the apex Appellate Division of the Supreme Court.

    In the violence that erupted, several thousand supporters of the Islamic party attacked a police outpost in Sundarganj upazila area of Gaibandha. They beat three policemen to death and set fire to the outpost. In response, police opened fire, leaving three people killed.

    In Thakurgaon about 1,500 Jamaat-Shibir men took out a procession after the verdict and attacked shops and houses of Awami League men and the Hindu community.

    Police and Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) teams rushed there and fired blank shots and tear shells to disperse the attackers.

    Encircling the police, the marauding Jamaat-Shibir men started to throw brick-bats and, at one stage, closed in to fight them. Police opened fire to escape, leaving one dead on the spot and about eight to 10 injured.

    A 13-year-old Shibir supporter, was later found lying dead, bullet-hit, inside a shop. A 24-year-old youth was also killed in police firing, sources said.

    Two other persons were declared dead at the Thakurgaon Sadar Hospital, police said.

    At least two people were killed and 57 others injured during clashes between the activists of JI-Shibir and the police in the northwestern district of Rangpur.

    Meanwhile, Shibir men vandalised at least 60 vehicles in Satkania upazila on the Chittagong-Cox's Bazar highway.

    In Noakhali Jamaat and Shibir activists set fire to a temple and houses of Hindu community.

    Two people were killed as the activists clashed with law enforcers at different points in Noakhali.

    In Dinajpur, a Shibir man was killed and two sustained bullet wounds when the BGB men opened fire on activists of JI and Shibir.

    Three people in Satkhira, two in Sirajganj and one each in Cox's Bazar and Chapainawabganj, were killed in violence.

    An Awami League activist was hacked to death in Natore district. JI activists also attacked police camps at different places.
