About one thousand protesters, holding black flags and with linked hands, have marched in Bangladesh to condemn a grenade attack that killed five opposition members last week. The protesters, including lawyers, teachers, students and children, on Friday called on the government to apprehend whoever killed five opposition members, including a former finance minister, by throwing a grenade at their rally. Protesters vowed to continue fighting for justice. As riot police and paramilitary forces stood guard nearby, they carried placards reading, "No More Killing" and "We Want Justice." The opposition has organized four national general strikes since the attack, and it plans to hold two more on Saturday and Sunday. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack. But police have arrested three ruling party activists for suspected complicity.
