Police and student protesters clashed in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka on August 6 as demonstrations continued over the country’s road safety conditions. The ongoing protests began after two students were killed by a bus in Dhaka on July 29. On Monday, local media reported that police used tear gas to disperse protesters at North South University.
