Officials in northwestern Bangladesh say one man has been killed and at least 25 others injured in a clash between farmers demanding better power supplies and pro-government activists.
The officials say Thursday's fighting erupted after the two groups hurled homemade bombs at each other and used sticks and stones.
The French News Agency quotes a police chief in Shibganj as saying security forces had to use tear gas to bring the situation under control.
In January, at least seven people died and some 100 were injured in the same area during a protest against frequent power shortages. The protest turned violent after a crowd of villagers -- who gathered outside a regional electricity office in Shibganj -- attacked police and set fire to several police vehicles and police retaliated.
