CHITTAGONG - Clashes between Islamic militants and their student opponents left at least four people dead and nearly 150 injured during a strike at the Bangladeshi port. Local sources said militant students fought police with home-made bombs and stones. Nearly 150 people were injured with more than 50 hit by bullets. The strike was called by the United Students Forum, which opposed plans by the ultra-rightist Jamaat-e-Islami party to hold a rally. Reuter
