Quick Glance: Escalation of violence in Bangladesh student protests despite curfew
  • Police imposed a strict curfew across Bangladesh and military forces patrolled parts of the capital Saturday to quell further violence after days of clashes over the allocation of government jobs left several people dead and hundreds injured.
