People celebrate after the Supreme Court rejected Abdul Quader Mollah's request for an appeal against his death sentence in Dhaka December 12, 2013. The court on Thursday cleared the way for the execution of Mollah, who is found guilty of war crimes committed during the 1971 war of independence from Pakistan, rejecting his request for a review of the death sentence, in a case that has heightened political tension less than a month before elections are due.
