A Bangladeshi auto driver waits for passengers during an ongoing strike called by the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014. On Monday, Bangladesh's Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's ruling Awami League party won one of the most violent elections in the country's history, marred by street fighting, low turnout and a boycott by the opposition that made the results a foregone conclusion. The political gridlock plunges Bangladesh deeper into turmoil and economic stagnation, and could lead to more violence in a deeply impoverished country of 160 million.
