Bangladesh's military-backed government has imposed a curfew on six cities, including the capital, following violent protests against emergency rule.
The government says the curfew will start at 8 p.m. local time (1400 UTC) on Wednesday and will continue indefinitely. Phone company officials say authorities have ordered mobile phone networks shut down as the curfew takes effect.
The measure was imposed after three days of clashes between students and security forces on university campuses.
One person was killed and at least 100 others injured in the violence on Wednesday in Dhaka and other cities.
The protests started at Dhaka University Monday, following a dispute between students and soldiers at a soccer (football) game.
The conflict flared into a larger strike against the presence of troops at Dhaka University.
