AFP: Violence hits Bangladesh as opposition leaders denied bail

The main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) called a nationwide general strike for Thursday, saying the court decision was "politically motivated" aimed at crushing "legitimate protests" over the disappearance of a BNP leader."It's totally unbelievable and a fabricated case. We are awestruck at the court's decision not to grant bail to our top leaders," BNP spokesman Nazrul Islam Khan told AFP, adding the charges against the men were bailable offences.

Lets hope the Bangladeshi government is the next victim.
