Supporters of Bangladesh's opposition parties have clashed with security forces in Dhaka ahead of the country's general election next week.

Police said two people were killed as protesters defied a ban on rallies.

The opposition is demanding that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina steps down and a neutral government is installed before the election.

The government has rejected the demand, saying the elections are a constitutional necessity.

Police fired water cannon and rubber bullets at protesters who threw stones and homemade bombs.
