A Bangladeshi left-of-centre political activist holds a placard as she takes part in demonstrations during a half day general strike in Dhaka on September 14, 2009. The strike was called by left-of-centre political parties after the government announced it would give drilling rights for gas and oil in the Bay of Bengal to US energy giant ConocoPhillips and Irish company Tullow. The half-day hartal in the Bangladeshi capital is the first since Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina came to power in January, but police reported none of the violence that was commonplace in previous strikes in the city.
