Pro-Islamists, Leftists  & Others Protest Against Rumsfeld's Bangla Visit - 2004-06-04


On the eve of Donald Rumsfeld's visit to Bangladesh , many pro-islamic parties and others protested against such visit voicing their opposition to sending Bangladeshi troops to Iraq or Afghanistan.

This will be the second top-level visit to Dhaka from the Bush administration within a year since Secretary of State Colin Powell's sojourn to Dhaka on June 19 last year when he had requested the Bangladesh government to consider sending troops to war-torn Iraq.

On Saturday evening, the US Secretary of Defense would hold a media briefing.

Rumsfeld is leading a 42-member delegation, including personal staff and media persons.
