Bangladeshi Police Detain Supporters of Ex-Leader


Security forces in Bangladesh arrested dozens of party activists on Monday for allegedly defying a ban on political meetings.

Citing emergency powers, authorities arrested at least 40 members of former Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's Awami League in the northeast city of Sylhet.

Hasina's supporters allegedly had been holding a meeting in violation of the country's four-month-old state of emergency.

Bangladesh's army-backed interim government has been arresting senior politicians, bureaucrats and businessmen in a crackdown on corruption since taking over in January.
