At least one person died and several people were injured yesterday in clashes between police and Islamist protesters in Bangladesh.
Police fired rubber bullets to disperse crowds who had been demonstrating in a rally organised by Islamist Hefajat-e-Islam.
The protesters want the government to pass stricter laws against blasphemy as they claim internet users are spreading atheism and lies about Islam. Clashes broke out when activists tried to break a police cordon, according to authorities.
