Following an industrial dispute over minimum wage levels in the readymade garments sector, violent demonstrations were held in Dhaka, including Gulshan, Tejgaon and Ashulia.
Further violent demonstrations are likely between now and the beginning of Ramadan (12 or 13 August).
Travellers are strongly advised to avoid all large gatherings, and remain particularly vigilant around industrial areas.
