Thousands take part in opposition rally in Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, thousands of opposition activists have taken part in an anti-government rally in Dhaka.

Opposition leader, Khaleda Zia, called for new elections under a neutral caretaker administration.

Protesters accuse the government of arresting some of them before the march and preventing them from reaching the capital.
