Bangladesh strike over war crimes trials sparks clashes
At least two people were killed as violence erupted across Bangladesh during a strike called by the largest Islamic party, Jamaat-e-Islami.
Police fired tear gas and rubber bullets and vehicles were torched.
The strike was called in protest at a war crimes trial in which several Jamaat-e-Islami leaders have been charged.
