At least five people died and 11 others were injured on Saturday in clashes between workers at an under-construction power plant and the police in Chittagong district in southern Bangladesh.

The clashes occurred around midday when workers at a coal-fired power plant began a demonstration calling for a wage increase, Chittagong Police Superintendent Mohiuddin Mahmud told EFE.EFE
