A bus torched on hartal-eve in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Politics Dhaka, Bangladesh - 16 May 2012

Demonstrators torched vehicles and fought police in the Bangladesh capital Dhaka on May 16, 2012 after a court Wednesday denied bail to 33 opposition figures over charges stemming from an anti-government protest last month.
