Bangladesh: Security Forces Kill Protesters

(New York, August 1, 2013) — Bangladeshi security forces have frequently used excessive force in responding to street protests, killing at least 150 protesters and injuring at least 2,000 more since February 2013, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. While large numbers of protesters have been arrested, the Bangladeshi authorities have made no meaningful efforts to hold members of the security forces accountable.
