At least 25 people were injured Monday during clashes between rival political activists during a crippling strike to force electoral reforms, a TV station reported. The clashes occurred between the supporters of former Prime Minister Sheikh's Hasina 14-party alliance and her rival ex-Prime Minister Khaleda Zia in two districts outside Bangladesh capital, Dhaka, Bangla Vision TV station reported. Hasina's alliance enforced a strike across the country to force electoral reforms and resignations of top election officials they say are biased to Zia's four-party coalition.
