    Two days of violence over wages and benefits for textile workers at a garment zone near Dhaka, Bangladesh's capital, have killed two people, injured at least 100 and shut dozens of factories.

    The violence started on Friday as workers at Suhi Industrial Park protested against alleged non-payment of salaries.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from the textile town where workers are demanding better pay.
