A bus stands in flames after it was set afire by opposition supporters trying to defy a ban on protests, in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Friday, Oct. 25, 2013. The government has banned rallies in some parts of the country, fearing violence as the opposition gears up for street protests. The violence came as opposition leader Khaleda Zia said Friday that she and her allies would stage a three-day general strike across the country beginning Sunday morning to back demands for a caretaker government made up of people from outside political parties to oversee elections that are due by early January.
