    DAHKA, Bangladesh, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Bangladesh was paralyzed Saturday by a nationwide strike, called by a key opposition party after a grenade attack this week killed its leaders.

    The nation's Awami League called the strike after a Thursday attack in the north killed five of its leaders and activists, Xinhua reported.

    Among the dead were former finance minister Shah A.S.M. Kibria, setting off widespread violence across the country.

    Saturday's strike halted commerce, shipping, education -- nearly everything except law enforcement. Pollice struggled to contain angry Awami League demonstrators in the capital.
