Violence in Bangladeshi capital Dhaka over wage rise

Violence has erupted in the Bangladeshi capital as thousands of garment workers protested over a government-backed wage increase that fell short of demands.

Police said protesters blocked traffic and burned cars in Dhaka, while other workers blocked one of the city's key link roads and attacked several cars in a factory district.

The unrest follows weeks of violent protests over the issue.
