Plain clothes police officers arrest a Bangladesh Jammat-e-Islami activist after a clash in Dhaka February 12, 2013. According to police, at least 50 cars have been vandalized and two police officers injured as Jamaat-e-Islami activists opened fire and clashed with law enforcers in different parts of the capital after police had banned their rally on Tuesday. Jamaat-e-Islami, the largest radical Islamist party in Bangladesh, called for the rally to protest against the Shahbagh demonstration. Thousands of protesters participating in the Shahbagh demonstration demanded capital punishment for Jamaat-e-Islami leaders awaiting a court verdict for war crimes committed during the 1971 Independence War, as well as for one of the leaders who received a life sentence, local media reported.
