Insecurity follows disputed Bangladesh vote

Attacks by opposition activists on schools that doubled as polling centres leave residents of a remote district fearful.

    Tensions remain high in Bangladesh following the re-election of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wajed.

    The opposition boycotted the poll which was marred by strikes and street violence.

    For the most part, the heavy security presence is keeping residents of the capital, Dhaka, safe from the political chaos. But outside Bangladesh's major cities, people feel less safe.

    More than 500 schools were attacked during the election because they doubled as polling centres and parents now worry about letting their children run around freely as they used to.
