May 18, 1986|From Reuters

MYMENSINGH, Bangladesh — At least 20 doctors were injured in attacks by patients last week at Mymensingh Medical College Hospital in northern Bangladesh, medical authorities said.

They said angry patients smashed the doors and windows of dormitories, ransacked offices and chased staff members in protest of a monthlong strike by junior doctors demanding permanent jobs.

Police said some patients fled the hospital and raided several private clinics, apparently to show their opposition to high treatment charges. They gave no further details.
