Police have charged dozens of opposition activists with involvement in bombings and vandalism during an opposition-sponsored general strike that has disrupted life across Bangladesh for a second day.

The strike on Monday was called to protest against the disappearance of an opposition official, Elias Ali, which his party, the BNP, blames on the government and security agencies.

The government denies involvement, and Sheikh Hasina Wajed, prime minister, has accused the opposition of hiding Ali to create anarchy in the South Asian country.
