Bangladesh's army chief has pledged to continue to pursue corrupt politicians and terrorists to help the country move forward.
In a speech Tuesday at a reunion for independence war veterans, General Lieutenant-General Moeen U. Ahmed said the time has come to fight injustice, terrorism and corruption.
Bangladesh's interim government has launched a widespread crackdown on corruption, detaining more than 100 top politicians on charges of graft, including the son of a former prime minister.
During his speech in Dhaka, General Ahmed also said throughout the country's 36 years of independence, politicians have given nothing good to Bangladesh.
