Protest over Bangladesh missing leader turns violent

DHAKA - Bangladeshi police battled stone-throwing protesters on Thursday during a demonstration over the disappearance of an opposition leader in which dozens of people were injured, police and witnesses said.
Police in the capital Dhaka used batons and teargas to disperse the protesters, who set at least three vehicles on fire and damaged several more outside the office of main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), according to the witnesses.
On Tuesday, BNP's young leader Ilyas Ali, a former student leader and former lawmaker, disappeared with his car driver near his Dhaka home.
