At Least 100 Protesters Hurt During Nationwide Strike in Bangladesh


A day-long strike called by the political opposition in Bangladesh closed schools, businesses and transport services in much of the country on Sunday, and at least 50 people were injured in clashes with police.

Local satellite television network ATN showed police with batons charging opposition activists as they tried to march in the capital, Dhaka. There are also reports that police fired on protesters in Jamalpur, wounding at least six people.

The nationwide strike was called by a 14-party alliance -- led by the main opposition Awami League -- to pressure the government into removing the newly appointed chief election commissioner and two of his colleagues.

Shops and schools were shut and traffic was disrupted nationwide.

Amir Khasru has more on the story.
