Bangladesh capital hit by mass protests demanding safe roads

  • Dhaka remained largely cut off from the rest of Bangladesh on Friday, with local and long-distance buses staying off the roads after five days of protests by young people demanding safer streets.
  • The protests, which began Sunday after two college students were struck and killed by a pair of buses, eventually paralyzed the capital of 7 million.
