Police and Protesting Textile Workers Clash in Bangladesh


Police in Bangladesh's capital, Dhaka, fired tear gas to break up a second day of protests by armed textile workers demanding higher wages.

At least 50 people were injured on Tuesday in the running street battles as workers armed with sticks and stones attacked several textile factories and vandalized cars in the Mirpur area of the capital.

The protesting garment workers are defying a ban on demonstrations imposed by the army-backed interim government to demand increases in salary and benefits to offset soaring food prices.

Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has the details.
