Police and protesters clash during Bangladeshi strike
Bangladeshi police have clashed with protesters in the capital Dhaka as a nationwide strike brought much of the country to a halt.
The 24-hour industrial action shut schools and businesses, including crucial garment export shipments.
The main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) called the walkout in protest at "misrule" by the Awami-League led government.
