Further Violence in Bangladesh Protest Clashes

Riot police continued to use teargas to force stone-throwing protesters to disperse, according to BBC News. Homemade bombs and missiles were also thrown at police. It is reported that at least eight officers were injured, and said that at least 200 protesters were hurt, though it is unknown how many of them required hospital treatment.

The protesters are supporters of the Awami League, and say that the upcoming election will not be fair.
