Strike cripples Bangladesh

Opposition stages protests against government's alleged inability to keep promises.

    Bangladesh has been paralysed by a dawn-to-dusk general strike.

    Opposition parties had called for the strike accusing the government of failing to deliver on a series of promises.

    Dozens of activists were arrested during protests in the capital, Dhaka.
