Bangladesh probes spate of disappearances

Human rights group says more than 81 people have gone missing, blaming security forces.



    A series of disappearances of Bangladeshis has forced the authorities to launch an investigation.

    A human rights group says more than 81 people went missing last year - and some believe the nation's elite security forces are responsible.

    Rights groups have also long criticised the security forces saying that they shoot before asking questions.
