Security forces in Bangladesh are on high alert, bracing for more protests after a grenade attack on an opposition rally killed at least 19 people Saturday.
Angry opposition supporters have been staging protests since the attack, which occurred as the leader of the opposition wami League, Sheikh Hasina, addressed supporters outside party headquarters in Dhaka. She escaped serious injury.
The Awami League has called for a two-day general strike, beginning Tuesday, and has described the attack as an ssassination attempt on the party's leader.
The government has denied any involvement and promised a full investigation.
Sunday, angry mobs ransacked a railway station and set fire to a train to protest Saturday's attack, which U.S. Secretary of tate Colin Powell has condemned "in the strongest terms."
