A community leader from east London has been charged with war crimes in Bangladesh.

Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin denies the charges which relate to the country's struggle for independence in the 1970s.

A court has issued an arrest warrant for him and if he is sent back he could face the death penalty.

Asif Munier, who is a son of a victim; documentary producer Gita Sahgal and defence lawyer Toby Cadman react to the charges.
