Three people were killed and more than 100 injured on Sunday in clashes between Bangladeshi police and activists of the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) trying to stage anti-government protests in defiance of a ban, witnesses said. Two people were killed in Chandpur, southeast of the capital and another in a town further south as thousands of BNP workers took to the streets, chanting demands for the ouster of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her government, witnesses said. Mohammad Shahidullah, police superintendent of Chandpur, confirmed the two deaths there, at least one by gunshots. "The situation is now under control but still very tense," he said by telephone.
