Around 100 people in Bangladesh have been wounded in clashes between riot police and protesters demanding electoral reforms.
Riot police fired rubber bullets and used tear gas on thousands of protesters demonstrating in and around the capital Dhaka Monday.
Protesters set fire to vehicles, threw stones and tried to overrun barbed-wire barricades.
Monday is the second day of a three-day transport blockade designed to force the government to implement opposition demands for electoral reforms and postpone this month's elections.
The country's caretaker government has banned protests. But the multi-party alliance opposing the January 22nd polls says the demonstrations will continue.
