Bangladeshi authorities say at least five people were killed and some 100 injured when police opened fire on a crowd protesting power shortages.
The authorities say the incident happened on Monday in Chapainawabganj district, northwest of the capital, Dhaka.
Local police say the crowd gathered outside the regional electricity office in Shibganj. They say the protest turned violent when demonstrators attacked police and set fire to several police vehicles.
Officials say the protesters were also demanding the release of three village leaders arrested Sunday for their participation in a demonstration earlier this month against frequent power outages.
