Voters are due to go to the polls in Bangladesh amid opposition protests that have left scores dead.

At least 100 polling stations were torched on the eve of the election.

The opposition, which is boycotting the vote, has begun a two-day general strike against what it called a "scandalous farce".

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has dismissed their demands for her to step down and a neutral government to oversee the poll, as in previous years.
