SHARE CAPTION ONLY: BANGLADESH STRIKE

A Bangladeshi boy is taken to the hospital after he was injured by a bomb during an opposition-led general strike in Dhaka, Dec. 8. Three people were wounded by homemade bombs as the two-day strike drew to a close. Three others were killed and nearly 150 injured when police fired on thousands of activists, mostly members of the Awami League. Police later raided Feni College, an opposition stronghold, arresting 53 activists and seizing weapons and explosives.
