DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — Soldiers have been deployed in a northern Bangladeshi district after activists of the country's largest Islamic party clashed with police, leaving three people dead during a nationwide general strike called to denounce an ongoing war crimes trial.
The Daily Star newspaper quoted police official Mokbul Hossain in Bogra district as saying that three men died in the clashes on Sunday.
Hossain said the latest violence erupted after the activists of Jamaat-e-Islami attacked police outposts and a ruling Awami League office.
The Islamic party has called for a non-stop shutdown across the country for Sunday and Monday.
At least 49 people have died in rioting after a tribunal on Thursday sentenced a senior party leader to death for war crimes committed during the 1971 independence war against Pakistan.
