Government supporters and pro-opposition lawyers hurl stones in Bangladesh

Share this article
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Supporters of Bangladesh's ruling party and pro-opposition lawyers at Dhaka High Court hurled stones at each other on Monday. Fresh violence has erupted in recent days ahead of the January 5 general election that the opposition, led by the Bangladesh Nationalist Party is boycotting. The opposition says it will not take part in the vote unless an interim government oversees it and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina steps down. The opposition's boycott means more than half of 300 parliament seats will go uncontested, undermining the legitimacy of the election and making it highly unlikely it will do anything to restore stability in one of the world's poorest countries.
