In Bangladesh, police have fired tear gas and rubber bullets at opposition supporters in the capital Dhaka.

The main opposition party, the BNP, and its allies were holding a one-day nationwide strike to protest against a recent rise in fuel prices.

Schools and businesses closed and thousands of police officers were on the streets.
