Bangladesh media under pressure

Journalists say harassment continues despite return to democracy.

    Following last year's elections in Bangladesh, the country's new democratic government promised media freedom. 

    But many journalists are continuing to accuse the government of harassment.

    Sheikh Hasina, the prime minister, says she wants the country's media to present the achievements of her government, and not publish quote "untrue" news. 

    Nicolas Haque reports from Dhaka.
