Bangladesh opposition enforces nationwide shutdown

A bus burns after it was set on fire by opposition protestors ahead of nationwide general strike Wednesday and Thursday by an 18-party opposition alliance to protest what it alleges killing of Islamic activists during a blasphemy protest in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Tuesday, May 7, 2013. Security forces patrolled the streets in Bangladesh capital Tuesday, a day after 29 people died in riots by Islamic hardliners to demand that the government enact an anti-blasphemy law in this Muslim-majority nation governed by secular liberal laws.
