100 hurt in Bangladesh protest over accident
Rajshahi (Bangladesh), June 7: Nearly 100 people were injured in clashes with police in northern Bangladesh today sparked by a road accident in which four people were killed, police and witnesses said.
Police used batons and fired teargas shells to disperse stone-throwing mobs as they went on a rampage in the northwestern town of Rajshahi, 280 km (175 miles) from the capital Dhaka.
The violence started after a university bus rammed a pickup van killing four of its occupants.
''The situation is still tense,'' a police officer said adding that nearly a 100 people were injured in the clashes that followed the accident.
