Bangladeshi mourners carry the coffin containing the body of blogger Rajib Haider, 30, for funeral in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013. Haidar had been critical of the Islamic group Jamaat-e-Islami, whose leader Abdul Quader Mollah was recently given a life sentence for his role in the killing of 381 civilians during the nation's 1971 war for independence from Pakistan. Thousands of university students and other activists demanding his execution have accused the fundamentalist party of killing Haider last evening while he was returning home, according to news reports.
