Bangladesh secret jails unveiled, hundreds detained, killed

DHAKA, BANGLADESH Bangladesh has secretly detained hundreds of people including scores of opposition activists, many of whom have later been killed, a rights group said Thursday.

The Human Rights Watch report, released days after the alleged abduction of a high-profile government critic, said security agencies were removing people with “no regard” for the rule of law.

Hundreds of people have been detained and held in secret locations since 2013, including at least 90 last year, it said.
