|Secularists and Islamists clash at Bangladesh blasphemy protest |
Islamist protesters demanding Bangladesh have a blasphemy law clashed with secularists and students, who organised their own protest in response.
The initial rally, attended by hundreds of thousands of people, was organised by Hifazat-e Islam activists, who demanded atheist bloggers who insult Islam be hanged.
Secularists tried to disrupt the protesters reaching the capital Dakar by calling a 22-hour nationwide strike.
