70 injured in Bangladesh separate clashes

Around 70 people including 10 policemen were injured in separate clashes in Bangladesh during a 30-hour countrywide strike on Sunday to protest against dropping the words “absolute faith in Allah” from the constitution, a media report said. A 12-party combine led by the Bangladesh Khelafat Majlish called the shutdown with support from the Bangladesh Nationalist Party-led opposition, the Daily Star reported. In Narayanganj, protesters blocked the Dhaka-Chittagong highway and burned tyres early morning.

A clash arose when pro-strike activists met anti-strike demonstrators face to face in Siddhirganj, leaving 20 people injured, police sources said.
