Bangladesh executes five for killing leader Mujibur

 Bangladesh executed two of five convicted men for killing independence leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, officials at a Dhaka prison said on Wednesday.

"Two of the killers are already dead and three others will be put to gallows in a while," a prison official told reporters.

Mujib was killed in a 1975 revolt by young army officers, along with most members of his family.
