The day in photos: Dhaka

Bangladeshis participate in a candlelight vigil at the Liberation War Museum to mark the killing of thousands of unarmed Bengalis by the then West Pakistani forces on March 25, 1971, in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The day also marks when the country's independence leader Sheikh Mujibur Rahman proclaimed the independence of East Pakistan, taking the name Bangladesh.
