Bangladesh police open fire on protesters

    Police in Bangladesh have fired on protesters, killing at least five people, as opposition supporters rallied across the country to demand a caretaker government to oversee elections.

    The opposition party has been boycotting parliament for a year, and its leader, Khaleda Zia, has promised her supporters that she will continue to rally against the government.

    Another nationwide demonstration is scheduled next month.
