50 Injured in Bangladesh Clashes


In Bangladesh, more than 50 people have been injured during clashes between police and opposition activists marching in support of a general strike.

Most of the injuries occurred in northern Patgram area where baton-wielding police clashed with stone-throwing protesters. The strike also saw sporadic clashes in the capital, Dhaka, and surrounding towns.

A 14-party opposition alliance led by the Awami League called today's work stoppage to protest the death of a party activist Sunday.

The alliance says the activist was killed by a tear gas canister fired at him by police during a protest at Dhaka's main bus terminal. But, the police say he may have died of a heart attack.

Bangladeshi authorities put more than six-thousand police and troops on stand-by in the capital to prevent unrest.

Zahurul Alam has more on the story.
