  • Student protesters in Bangladesh stormed a prison, freeing possibly hundreds of inmates and held rallies in Dhaka despite police bans and an internet shutdown. The death toll from unrest this week exceeded 100 as protests against a quota system for state jobs continued.

Quick Glance: Bangladesh Quota Protests Escalate: Looking Ahead
  • A telecommunications blackout cut off Bangladesh from the world on Friday, as the country of 170 million people faced mounting violence following days of intense protests and clashes between students and security forces.

  • To quell the unrest, authorities on Thursday cut off mobile and internet services. According to the monitoring group NetBlocks, the South Asian country has experienced a complete nationwide internet blackout for more than 16 hours.

  • Authorities released a statement accusing protesters of setting fire to and vandalizing buildings, including police and government offices. This also involved the Dhaka headquarters of state broadcaster Bangladesh Television (BTW), which has been offline since.

  • After the government's appeal, the country's Supreme Court suspended the High Court's reintroduction of quotas. August 7 has been set as the date for the court to hear the government's challenge against the High Court decision.

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. The curfew follows what was likely the deadliest day yet in the weeks of protests. There were varying reports on the number of casualties on Friday.

  • The students, protesting for weeks, intensified their actions as violence erupted Tuesday, posing the biggest challenge to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina since her fourth consecutive term win in January. The situation was described as 'extremely volatile,' with hundreds to possibly thousands injured across the country.

  • The protests are backed by the main opposition party of Bangladesh, promising to organize their own demonstrations. The government had previously suspended job quotas, but in June, the Supreme Court reinstated them, leading to further tensions. Hasina has called for...

  • The chaos in Bangladesh's governance and economy, along with the frustration of youths struggling to find good jobs after graduation, are highlighted by the current events. The protesters demand an end to a quota system for government jobs in favor of veterans from the 1971 independence war, advocating for a merit-based selection process.
