Bangladesh: Protesters denounce writer's prison death

DW, 03 Mar 2021
Activists in Bangladesh have been hitting the streets to protest the death of Mushtaq Ahmed, a writer who died in prison and who was sent there in the first place for what he said on Facebook. He had criticized the government's handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Those demonstrating demand the withdrawal of the expansive, and fairly new Digital Security Act under which Ahmed was charged. And they want an independent investigation, not a government one, into how he died.
