Bangladesh Islamists rally against bloggers

Islamist groups in Bangladesh have held a rally in the capital, Dhaka, calling for tough curbs on bloggers who insult the Islamic religion.

Police say 100,000 people gathered for the rally after a "long march" from around the country to take part.

A 45-year-old man was killed on Friday when some activists clashed with supporters of the ruling Awami League.
