Bangladesh war trial witness found in India

Key defence witness turns up in Indian jail after he disappeared before his testimony in Dhaka tribunal.

    Bangladesh's Jamaat-e-Islami leader, Delwar Hossain Sayadee, was sentenced to death in February for war crimes committed during the country's war of independence in 1971.

    Now a key witness in his trial, who disappeared before he could testify, has turned up in an Indian jail.

    A British journalist in Bangladesh says he has evidence to prove that Shukhoranjan Bali was kidnapped by Bangladeshi security forces, leading many to question the fairness of the war trial.

    Al Jazeera's Dominic Kane reports.
