Bangladesh faces a hung parliament after polls failed to give any party clear control. Sheikh Hasina of the centrist Awami League led the race to be prime minister, but the outcome will not be known until re-polling ordered because of sporadic violence.

Hasina was well ahead of another strong woman, former prime minister Begum Khaleda Zia of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), but a final picture of the parliamentary election results would not emerge until the new round of voting was completed. Reuter - Dhaka
