There have been violent clashes between opposition activists and police during Bangladesh's general election, amid a boycott by the opposition.

At least 18 people were killed during yesterday's polling. Dozens have died in the run-up to the election.

Scores of polling stations have been torched. Voting ended at 10:00 GMT and was said to be thin.

The opposition has boycotted the vote, and called a two-day strike over what it termed a "scandalous farce".
