Bangladesh has arrested more than 7,000 opposition activists since the start of nationwide protests two weeks ago.

The authorities are struggling to deal with unrest in which activists have bombed vehicles and blockaded roads, and 29 people have died.

Opposition leader Khaleda Zia called for protests on the anniversary of last year's election.
