Thousands of students, including school children, have been blocking streets in Bangladesh to protest the killings of two students by a speeding bus. Their demand? That the government invest in road safety.
But photo and video from the scene of the protests shows members of the Bangladeshi government youth wings attacking the protesters with sticks and machetes. Eyewitnesses and journalists also reported police standing by while children were beaten up.
Now, instead of prosecuting those responsible for these attacks, the government is going after the protesters, locking up those whose only crime seems to be peaceful criticism.

“The senior officer stood on my jaw while the other [officer] hit my head in and restrained me. They said, ‘You don’t run this prison … we do,’ and they cut my clothes off. They left me naked on the floor of the exercise yard for a couple of hours before giving me fresh clothes.”
