Two more murders in Bangladesh
The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), which lost the polls, said at least 17 of its activists have died at the hands of Awami League Party members since voting on December 29.
“Scores of Awami League members attacked the BNP activists early Wednesday. The attack left two BNP activists dead and six injured. One died in a Molotov cocktail attack and the other was beaten to
death,” a police spokesman said.
The BNP ruled the country between 2001 and 2006 but was defeated by the Awami League in a landslide in the elections, which were largely peaceful.
