Violent clashes continued for more than four hours on the streets of Dhaka, Bangladesh yesterday afternoon as members of Islamist group Hifazat-e-Islam clashed with police.
Police fired rubber bullets into the crowds as Hifazat supporters set cars on fire and threw sticks and bricks. Police said looting continued into the night.
Hifazat-e Islam want the government to pass a new blasphemy law, and is calling for offenders to be tried under Sharia law. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's has said no new law is needed.
