    At least one ruling party worker was killed during clashes in northwestern Bangladesh as a nationwide strike called by the opposition shut schools and businesses across the country.

    The main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) enforced the strike to protest at police firing on a rally on Wednesday, when at least two senior party officials were hit by rubber bullets in the capital, Dhaka.
