Bangladesh war crimes tribunal began its first trial
Garrett Eisenhour at 12:00 AM ET

On November 20, 2011, the Bangladesh International Crimes Tribunal (ICTB) began its first trial for crimes against humanity committed during the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971. A week prior to the trial, ICTB prosecutors filed an application for formal charges against a former political leader on allegations of crimes against humanity in connection with the 1971 conflict. Many current and former leaders have faced indictments and charges of crimes against humanity as the trial continues.
