Bangladeshi street hawker boys sit on their cart to take shelter from the rain on a deserted street during a general strike called by 18 opposition parties in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Wednesday, May 8, 2013. The strike was ostensibly organized to demand changes in electoral law and to protest the deaths of 29 people, many of them Islamic hardliners, on Monday during street demonstrations calling for new anti-blasphemy laws. Rioting has swept Bangladesh since late February when a war crimes tribunal convicted Delwar Hossain Sayedee, a top leader of the small opposition party Jamaat-e-Islami, of committing atrocities during Bangladesh's 1971 war for independence against Pakistan.
