General Strike to Continue in Bangladesh - 2004-08-25


Authorities in Bangladesh are bracing for more demonstrations to Wednesday on the second day of a general strike called to protest a deadly grenade attack at an opposition rally.

More than 25 people were injured at the start of the two-day general strike Tuesday in clashes between police and demonstrators.

Officials say some opposition protesters attacked railway stations and disabled tracks to stop trains from running. The strike began with thousands of people marching in Dhaka, the capital.

The opposition Awami League called the strike, following what it called an assassination attempt against its leader, Sheikh Hasina, on Saturday. Ms. Hasina was lightly injured in the grenade attack, but at least 20 people were killed and about 150 others injured.

The U.S. State Department asked Americans traveling or living in Bangladesh to use caution.
