DHAKA, Bangladesh: Police say security forces clashed with stone-throwing protesters from an Islamic party in southern Bangladesh, leaving one person dead and several others injured.
Police used tear gas Saturday to stop supporters from Jamaat-e-Islami party from smashing vehicles and blocking roads in Chittagong district. The area is 216 kilometers (135 miles) southeast of Dhaka.
One person was killed and about a dozen were injured in the fighting, said a local police official speaking on condition of anonymity as he is not authorized to speak to the media.
Rioting broke out in Bangladesh on Thursday after a war crimes tribunal gave a death sentence to Delwar Hossain Sayedee, a Jamaat-e-Islami leader, for atrocities linked to the country's 1971 independence war.
The violence has left at least 45 dead and hundreds injured.
