Bangladesh clashes as shares dive

Bangladeshi police have used tear gas and water cannon against angry investors after the stock market incurred huge losses.

Trading on the Dhaka Stock Exchange index was halted after it fell by 660 points, or 9.25%, in less than an hour.

It was the biggest one-day fall in its 55-year history.
