The World

February 14, 1988

Protesters fought police and detonated homemade bombs as Bangladesh's opposition parties renewed their drive to oust President Hussain Mohammed Ershad. At least 35 people were reported injured. A general strike, which was to continue today, shut down most shops and businesses in the capital of Dhaka and other major cities. The strike, initially called as part of the campaign to oust Ershad, turned into a protest against violence during local elections last week that left more than 100 people dead.
